ART'17 12th International Conference on non-destructive investigations and microanalysis for the diagnostics and conservation of cultural and environmental heritage.

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..

Topics of interest include:

  • Environmental Control and Protection
  • Microanalysis and Conservation of Cultural Heritage
  • Non-destructive Testing in Cultural Heritage
  • Structural Control and Monitoring of Cultural Heritage
  • Mechanical Characterizations of Historical Building Material

Hidden in museums, archives and libraries around Europe sit artifacts that tell a story and are waiting for their day in the sun. The Cultural Heritage institutions began to digitize these artifacts making them available online, so that users would discover them and find value in learning more about Europe’s cultural heritage. Digitization is progressing and more hidden treasures are becoming visible. However, in today’s digital society existing on the web is not enough. Audiences want to engage with culture, they want to create their own stories not just read the ones that exist, they want to integrate the information in their teaching, their creative projects, they want to play with the material, not only look at it. They want to reuse, they want to remake, they want to re-imagine.

The EuropeanaSpace project is a catalyzer for generating new ways of engaging with digital cultural heritage through creative reuse in education and learning as well as in the creative industries. Cultural Heritage: Reuse, Remake, Re-imagine, the third conference from the Europeana Space project, will showcase the myriad ways that cultural heritage can be used and enriched through new technologies, innovation and the ingenuity of the creative industries.
