Learning outcomes

The course aims to introduce the students with the fundamental elements of non-invasive diagnostics applied to the study of paintings.
On the one hand, students will be able to read the painting as a composite organism, which is the outcome of choices made by the author as well as evidence of the past.
On the other hand, students will be introduced to unconventional paths for the study of artistic techniques, restoration methodologies, and analysis of preservation methodologies.
