The International Seminar on Conservation of Modern Bronzes
The International Seminar on Conservation of Modern Bronzes, organized in the Museum of Contemporary Art of University of São Paulo (MAC USP), between November 22 and 23 of 2012, was a closed event, for invited experts only (art historians and conservators), in which we’ve chosen some study cases to debate the methodologies and issues raised by conservation of sculptural works, from the first half of the Twentieth century, cast in bronze. Here published are the case studies presented on the occasion.
We take this opportunity to pay homage to the late Zeno Birolli, major reference in the study of Boccioni as a sculptor, and very enthusiastic of the event we organized.
