The second module of ACI 2013 was the starting point of a new collaboration between University of Delaware (UD), Delaware and the Centro di Conservazione Archeologica (CCA) – Roma. The course took place between the 10th and the 30th of June 2013, and it was attended by 15 undergraduate students from the Bachelor of Arts in Art Conservation at University of Delaware.
Designed by Dr. Roberto Nardi, the aim of the program was introducing the principles of conservation of cultural heritage through theoretical lectures, archaeological sites visits, practical seminars on traditional materials and technology, and hands-on experience in the CCA Lab, in Belmonte in Sabina, with original roman artifacts, and in archaeological/conservative investigation in the roman villa of Sant'Imbenia, Alghero, Sardinia.
