“Conceptual restaurers” group experience in Rome
Probably for being immersed in the immense beauties of Rome, locals have lost memory of some of their monuments: medieval porticoes, decorations and Egyptian and Greek granite column bodies have progressively become invisible in their eyes. Francesca, Directress of the Fabrica association, would like to create a group of “conceptual restaurers” coming from all over the world, so that with their “external” eyes could be given value and importance to some of the “monuments” of Rome which have become invisible for negligence and ignorance.
With your help we could make these ancient stones speak again and thus do not miss the first inspection organised by Francesca for tomorrow morning!
Francesca will help you immerse yourself in the most hidden reality of the artistic and architectural culture of Rome, teaching and giving you tha unique chance to experiment the scientific method of data collection, used by the archaeologists, in particular the so called “conceptual restaurers”. Like a detective, you are to rediscover what has already become invisible, reconstructing the history, the very reason to have great time-defining stratification, accumulated for millenia. An experience indeed unique and unrepeatable that you can live only in Rome. At the end, you will have the possibility to give voice to your discoveries in a very special way, a flashmob “a sorpresa” into which you can be a protagonist
