The Preventive and Planned Conservation Conference 2014 will be held in Monza and Mantua, Italy, from 5 to 9 May 2014
The conference aims at presenting an international overview of Preventive and Planned Conservation strategies. Theoretical reflections and best practices will be shown in order to highlight potentialities, gained advantages and difficulties encountered in the different steps of the process (planning, design, execution and management).
Preventive and Planned Conservation, that is giving priority to the risk assessment and to the mitigation of decay causes, is a management strategy based on a long run vision and on a virtuous integration between conservation and valorization.
Care of built cultural heritage is an important commitment and investment, which has to be aimed at the production of value, meant both as economic and cultural. For this to happen, conservation has to be included among the management activities.
The Conference topics which include a wide range of activities are :
- Integration between conservation and valorisation processes
- Economic and social aspects
- Seismic risk protection
- Methodologies and tools for prevention and maintenance
- ICT for the enhancement of conservation process
These include keynote and invited talks, full and poster presentations, panels and round table discussion sessions.
All selected papers will be published in Conference proceedings. No fee is required.
