The event, which coincides with World Heritage Day, is aimed at both professionals and the general public.
Coinciding with World Heritage Day on 16 November, the conservation-restoration team at MNAC (Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya) will, for the first time, offer a day-long presentation of the work they have carried out over recent months. This activity is designed both for professionals in the sector and for the general public and is free, though it is advisable to register in advance. You can do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 93 622 03 76.
The sessions will begin at 9.15pm and will go on throughout until mid afternoon with talks, some on very specific works, such as 'The Christ of Capdella' on the structure of Romanesque wood carvings, along with other that are more generic, like the one that closes the day and takes th name 'How do we protect paintings on canvas when they have to travel?' The scientific coordination of the day is by Mireia Mestre, head of the MNAC's preventative restoration and conservation area.
16 November was declared UNESCO World Heritage Day in 1972. Since then, museums and cultural spaces around the world commemorate it with various activities. This is the first year that the MNAC has organised this study day, and everything suggests that if it is well received, it will become an annual event.
