At the end of the seminar “Principles of conservation and restoration of works of art for students of the Master’s Degree in History and Valorisation of Cultural Heritage” at the University of Pavia, restorer Prof. Mario Colella will hold a workshop open to all on Saturday 17 June from 4 to 6 p.m. dedicated to Pva gels for cleaning plaster and marble works of art.

The public will be able to attend the workshop and the operations carried out by the students for whom active participation is reserved. These are students of the Master’s Degree in History and Valorisation of Cultural Heritage at the University of Pavia and students of the Lombardy Region Restoration Technician course enrolled in the workshop.
