National Doctoral Programme in Cultural Heritage Science

The aim of the Doctoral Course in Cultural Heritage Science is to promote the training of scholars and high-profile experts able to carry out activities of research, management and development in public and private institutions, even at international level. The collaboration among universities (italian and international) and academies of fine arts makes it possible to provide doctoral students with diversified study, research and intervention methodologies, capable of making them interact with approaches that are both different and at the same time usefully compatible. As far as the academies of fine arts are concerned, it should be noted that the teaching staff will bring their disciplinary resources to provide the tools required to consider the arteworks as cultural and social communication products.

The objectives of the course are to provide doctoral students with both specific and interdisciplinary skills in relation to the four curricula making up the learning pathway of the doctorate.

Curriculum ART, ARCHEOLOGY, HISTORY, RESTORATION: aimed at the acquisition of tools for historical, critical, material, technical, diagnostic and intervention investigations. The archaeology sector is mainly characterised by field surveys with archeological field surveys and archaeometric analyses of artefacts and architectural contexts. For the field of ancient history, particular attention will be given to the experimentation of technologies aimed at the acquisition and 3D modelling of casts of Greek and Latin epigraphs.

Curriculum HISTORY AND PRESERVATION OF BUILT HERITAGE: aimed at the acquisition of interdisciplinary knowledge on cultural heritage, history, innovative digital classification, preservation, safety procedures (even seismic); development of best practices for the territory and to enhance the role of the cultural heritage itself (architectural and engineering) - in the horizon of sustainable development, for the revitalization of national economy through cultural tourism; development of new procedures to promote the tourist attractions spread throughout Italy.

Curriculum VALORIZATION OF THE CULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL HERITAGE: aimed at the acquisition of specific research and analysis tools. The Landscape is considered as an environmental context, but also as an indentitary representation.
