Restoring Our Artistic Heritage

Elke Numeyer-Windshuttle

The Florence Art and Restoration Fair returns to Fortezza da Basso for its fourth edition from November 13 to 15.

Dedicated to the restoration of our artistic heritage, the fair opens its doors from 9:30 a.m. till 6:30 p.m., bringing together institutions, companies, schools and training organisations in a guest list expected to exceed 200,000 people.

Approximately 1500 delegates and organisations from around the world meet to discuss the theme “Heritage and Landscape as Human Values,” which aims to encourage collaboration between Italian and international companies, and share information and the latest research.

Boasting a more interactive experience for visitors than previous occasions, the fair also showcases an extensive range of art and sculptures, as well as training sessions and educational activities. Guests are also invited to host a cultural or scientific event in reserved areas at the exhibition center upon approval.

“We are sure that, thanks to a series of international agreements and partnerships with high-profile personalities, companies and organisations, the Fair can truly put itself at the service of culture, providing real solutions for the needs of the cultural heritage market,”  said Franco Sottani, the event’s president.


The Florence Art and Restoration Fair is non-profit event, working in partnership with the18th International Assembly of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), which is takes place at the same time.

Further information, tickets and documentation to host an event can be found at www.salonerestaurofirenze.org.
