As part of the RRM project (Restorers and Restorations in Museums), the idea arose of involving tourism operators in the area as well as tour guides and educators, initially for the 2011-2012 edition. Since visitors are curious about restoration and its issues, the initiative sets out to provide them with more information on these subjects which have been little considered up to now, partly due to lack of time and specific training.
Museum-goers differ widely in their needs, ranging from students at schools and universities alongside visitors from Italy and abroad. Each category has its own type of curiosity on the subject of restoration, and since tour guides and educators are the go-betweens in this field, specific in-depth meetings have been arranged for them.
As for the 2011-2012 edition, the speakers at the 2014 event were curators, conservators and restorers from the five museums involved.
The calendar of events for the 2014 edition, focusing on the museums involved, also included two preparatory meetings dealing with the history of restoration, held in the “Sala della Passione” at Milan’s Brera Art Gallery.
