The Centre for the Conservation and Promotion of Cultural Heritage is a coordination structure, promoting innovative activities and projects, from research to education, in collaboration with other universities, public entities and the Italian Ministry of Culture.
Cultural Heritage is a strategic resource not only favoring the social and economic development, but also enhancing the quality of life of a country. The issue of protecting, preserving and promoting these resources involves a wide range of disciplines and techniques, oftentimes implying multi-disciplinary expertise.
Material knowledge, diagnosis of degradation, durability evaluation, monitoring of decay processes, conservation strategies, as well as economic and territorial planning, are all crucial issues of this research field.
Politecnico di Milano meets the requirements, the tools, like laboratories and instrumentations, and the interdisciplinary relationships, making Cultural Heritage a strategic research area for the next future.
