Academic Programs:

Photo of Art Restoration Courses in Naples, ItalyThe study programmes of the different courses were generated after several important demands from the sector operators, concerning the need to deepen and to update one’s personal technical-scientific and cultural knowledge, to enhance entrepreneurial know-how, and to confront oneself with teachers and colleagues from other countries.

At the Istituto Europeo del Restauro, training and research are complementary in the professional activities conducted by a team made up of professional restorers, university professors and students, who in this way can carry out direct experience in field-work.

The teachers of the courses are highly qualified. Very often they are the most expert in their field, and their personal prestige stands as a further guarantee of the Institute’s authority and reliability.

Taking part in courses and in restoration activities with teachers and students coming from different countries offers a unique opportunity for professional growth, and furthermore guarantees an educational-cultural variety which otherwise would not be possible in a more limited reality.

This is also the place where Italian and foreign realities – not only relating to the cultural heritage preservation but also to the industrial world – meet Its aim is to promote a synergic relationship between the two sectors, creating also socio-cultural opportunities. Important partners in the industrial field offer their economic, scientific and ethical contribution, supporting the initiatives of the Institution and its young students.
