  • The project

    As part of its multidisciplinary commitment, Bracco Foundation is contributing to the prestige convention with the intervention by professor Rossella Vodret, art historian and former Superintendent of the Polo Museale Romano, in the session on “Museographical practices, restoration and innovative technologies serving the historic, artistic and cultural heritage” with art historians, institutions and experts taking part.

    In her talk, focusing on the work of Caravaggio, she will show how a scientific contribution makes it possible to discover important evidence in the technique and creative process of the artist, in and attributing a work and dating it.

    Radiography, reflectography and many other non-invasive diagnostic techniques, typically used in medical science, are in fact increasingly used in the study and restoration of works of art to bring masterpieces back to their original splendour and, at times, to discover under the layer of paint the changes of mind and secret techniques of the great Masters.

    Bracco Foundation has been involved for some time in the "Art from Inside" project which highlights the close relationship between science and the artistic heritage. Here, in addition to supporting several national and international exhibitions including, for example, in 2011 and exhibition on the Venetian landscape painters at the Washington National Gallery and in 2017 the “Inside Caravaggio” exhibition in Milan, it promoted in 2018 an important convention on the topic in Naples.
