Conservation and Technical Study of Paintings from the Capodimonte Museum: Experiences and Perspectives.
The Capodimonte Museum in Naples possesses a collection of great relevance that makes it possible to study the history of Italian art of the different schools from the 15th to the 17th century. Working as a Conservator-Restorer in this Museum is a great opportunity and privilege. Over a period of several years, a reality of collaboration with the university and the CNR in the joint scientific and historical-artistic technical study is being built up, which has yielded far-reaching results and initiated promising projects
I will be presenting a number of relevant restoration and technical studies for which I was responsible, in particular those on the works of Raphael and his workshop, which have been the focus of an exhibition in 2021, where the interaction of restoration, art historical research, conservation history and scientific investigation have led to a significant increase in knowledge.
