The course aimes at giving the students the basic theoretical knowledge and pratical skillsthat will enable them to analyse a polychrome wood sculpture's conservation state . With the scientific expert's cooperation they will be able to plan the different steps of a restauration scheme.
The teaching programme consist of a theoretical part (25 hrs) and a praticalo ne, working on artifacts in the laboratory (100 hrs).

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)
Knowledge and understanding.
At the end of the module's course, the student must have acquired all the theoretical knowledge necessary to:
1. reading the state of preservation of the artifact, the techniques of execution and the materials that make up it.
2. analyze and reconstruct the conservative history of a sculpture or wooden furniture
3. Identification and choice of adhesives and consolidators, suitable for the actual requirements of the product.
4. Removal of polychrome layers superimposed on the original paint film, using organic solvents and emulsions.
5. Knowledge of materials and techniques to be used in the reintegration of polychrome wood sculptures.
Applied knowledge and understanding.
At the end of the module, the student must demonstrate that he / she is able to:
- recognize the various decorative techniques and materials used to make them;
- identify the causes of degradation of the wooden artifact;
- Identify the methodology and materials to be used for cleaning and removing the layers covered by the polychrome of a wooden artifact.
At the end of the first year lab the student will acquire:
- ability to use appropriate research methods to address the issues to be addressed;
- ability to evaluate different job hypotheses to address different cases of intervention.
At the end of the first year lab the student must be able to formulate and argue for a conservative and aesthetic intervention project on the preparatory and pictorial layers of the wooden artifact.
At the end of the module, the student must be able to find and organize independently all the scientific and bibliographic information about the materials and techniques of a wooden artifact.
It will also have to know how to organize such information for the drafting of the conservative and aesthetic intervention project.
