Gallery: Paper Restoration Workshop - San Gemini Historic Archives

Instructor: Prof. Konstantinos Choulis
Teaching Assistants: Giulia Barbero, Giovanna Greco, Valeria Arena

Part of the SGPS philosophy is to combine, as much as possible, pedagogic activities and useful field work. In the paper restoration workshop we have been restoring for the last few years documents from the San Gemini Historic Archives. Usually single sheet manuscripts, records and letters, from the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries. The work involves the dry cleaning, consolidation and patching of the paper material. In the letters, the tears caused by the breaking of the seals were not repaired because the damage was the result of the intended use of the document.
