PALAZZO SPINELLI PER L’ARTE E IL RESTAURO
was founded in 1998 as a non-profit association linked to Palazzo Spinelli Institute for Art and Restoration (founded 1978). The association consolidated and extended Palazzo Spinelli’s aim of safeguarding world cultural heritage by promoting, organising and managing initiatives and courses for the study, conservation, restoration, promotion and fruition of cultural and artistic heritage. Palazzo Spinelli now offers accredited courses in restoration, conservation and management of cultural heritage, carries out research and surveys, campaigns for archaeological excavation, documentation and cataloguing, develops integrated plans for cultural tourism, organises conferences and seminars and provides training activities and consulting.
Palazzo Spinelli’s mission is to contribute to education and the conscious use of the artistic and cultural heritage of humanity by developing models of governance aimed at increasing a sense of belonging, interest, respect and awareness of one’s own and others’ cultures. Our students enjoy the hands-on learning environment and working on restoration and cultural development projects in some of the world’s most important and culturally defining places. The campus in Florence’s antiques quarter provides endless opportunities to see the way our art history has been shaped and to take it forward for the next generation.
