Temple Summer in Sicily
Art Conservation using Biotechnology
The Art Conservation using Biotechnology offers an opportunity to investigate the crossroads between biology and art conservation, using Sicily as an incredible experiential laboratory. Over the course of five weeks, students will travel from Cefalù to Palermo, studying the biological basis behind the technology used for art conservation, through practice in the classroom at the University of Palermo, as well as field lectures and tours at local museums, temples, and archeological excavation sites throughout the island. This program is open to students of all academic backgrounds, and particularly for those studying science and art-related disciplines. GenEd Science and Technology and Biology courses available.
