What you'll do

On Site – Restoration Experience is a project that offers guests the opportunity to enter one of Rome’s most important restoration studios, which is located a stone’s throw from the Pantheon, to get closer to ancient and contemporary artworks through the fascinating lens of conservation. Visitors can reach a level of comprehension and awareness unattainable in a traditional exhibition setting. On Site – Restoration Experience is a unique space where visitors can take a close look at the work of restorers and understand their technical and analytical approach when they work on an artwork that is, by nature, unique. On Site – Restoration Experience offers visitors the chance to understand the importance of the artisanal aspect of an artist’s creative work by observing various types of wood, canvas, paints and glues in a journey that will change people’s relationship with art forever. In a 60 to 90 minute visit, our guests will be involved in ongoing work that takes place in the restoration studio that is always exclusive and authentic.
