ARTE E' SCIENZA
1st December 2017 | Pisa (Italy)
Since 2014 the Italian Association of Archeometry (AIAr) has been promoting a National exhibition for the dissemination of the sciences for cultural heritage (Arte è Scienza), with the patronage of MiBACT and ICOM. Throughout Italy, places of culture and science are open to the public, even non-specialist, with conferences, workshops and guided tours.
Pisa is among the participating cities of Arte è Scienza 2017, providing an event dedicated to the European project Nano-Cathedral, organized by partners of the University of Pisa with the precious collaboration of the Opera of the Primaziale Pisana.
The event, scheduled on December 1 2017, provides a dissemination conference and a guided tour of Piazza dei Miracoli. The conference will take place at the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Pisa and Nano-Cathedral Italian partners will share their own experience and their role in the project.
The day will end with a guided visit to Piazza dei Miracoli by the Opera of Primavera Pisana, in collaboration with the DST-UNIPI, during which visitors can see where activities are still under way on-site testing of the European project products.
