Cultural Heritage at the Physics Department
We are specialized in the development of optical devices for the non-invasive application on cultural heritage materials.
Our young group was born just ten years ago. Since then we have been focalized on study the material interaction with light.
We became expert of pigments and pictorial materials and our main scope is now the application of optical systems for the conservation and restoration of artworks. Collaborations with Museums and other Research Centres are fundamental part of our work!
Find out more detailes about our mostly advanced portable systems below.
As University research group, we offer a series of Master Thesis research proposal, addressed especially to physical engineers and focused on development of novel techniques for the study of Cultural Heritage. You can find the updated proposal list on the physic department web-site Physics Web-Site

WORKSHOP: "Painting degradation? Let’s have a look!"
17 April 2018
Artis group is grateful to all the partecipants that have made the Workshop a positive occasion for open new communication channels. The success of the event was particularly possible thanks to the partecipation of international experts that have illustrated their most recent research activities, encouraging discussion. Finally, ArtisLab acknowledge Institut français Italia - Ambassade de France in Italie that financed and supported the event through Appel à projets Cassini 2017. Here, you can find a report of the event.
