ART'17 - Presentation

12th International Conference on non-destructive investigations and microanalysis for the diagnostics and conservation of cultural and environmental heritage

Politecnico di Torino (Turin, Italy)
November 22nd/24th, 2017

Non-destructive analysis has turned out to be a crucial method to achieve more successful and long-lasting preservation of works of art and environmental heritage. With the aim to promote education and competence in this field, the "art" logo was created over twenty-five years ago and it still represents, in national and international meetings, one of the most successful initiatives in this area. The desired synergy among experts will lead to continuous development of new scientific methods in the fields of preservation, reconstruction and diagnostics of cultural and environmental artworks.
The last edition of the "art Conference" was held in Madrid in June 2014 and promoted cooperation among different specialists coming from all over the world and it strengthened the relationship especially between Italian and Spanish Society for NDT.
The "art'17 Conference" will strive to achieve the above–mentioned goals by bringing together delegates, conservation scientists and curators, art historians, analytical scientists and architectural researchers.
These experts will meet in Turin, important business and cultural center located in northern Italy and first capital city of Italy. The technical and scientific programme will include both invited and short presentations and poster sessions that will highlight the application of NDT in a large number of important sectors.
Save the date and see you in Turin!
