Antonio Mirabile (AM), and Nicole Bonelli and Piero Baglioni (CSGI), partners of the NANORESTART project, recently were hosted by the Pinacoteca de Sao Paulo in Brasil for a workshop entitled:

"Nanotecnologia aplicada a conservacao e restauro" (Nanotechnology applied to conservationa and restoration)

It was an interesting opportunity to give the public an overview of materials and methodologies that are being developed in the project. The workshop was specifically aimed to conservators and restorers and it was made of theorical seminars and laboratory practice.

 Take a look at some pictures of the workshop in the gallery section.
