Week 1 of Restoration Workshop

Well my first day of class wasn’t too eventful, but the second day we stepped right into it! My instructor, Lorenzo Casamenti, went over what the class would be covering and talked a little about his own processes when working on pieces for the Galleria degli Uffizi and the Palazzo Pitti. :O As these are some of the best art galleries in Florence, perhaps the world, needless to say I was a little impressed… haha. The class is collectively working on restoring a large painting from Scandicci, Italy called “Santa Caterina.”

After this week, our class is traveling to the region of Calabria to work in Rocca Imperiale, a characteristic medieval town and a very important archaeological site near the Gulf of Taranto. Seems so soon after only a few days of practice! But still, I am learning a lot and enjoy working in class. Signore Casamenti is very knowledgeable!
