The Committee for the Conservation of the Acropolis Monuments (ESMA) and the Acropolis Restoration Service (YSMA) are to hold a two-day conference in the Acropolis Museum Auditorium, on the 18th and 19th November 2016, on the subject of:
Specialised research and implementation issues in the Acropolis restoration works carried out during the period of 2010-2015
The objective of the two-day conference is to present specialised research papers concerning the areas of architecture, structural restoration and surface preservation; at the same time to explore specific problems of technology and technical applications that had to be confronted during the implementation of the restoration programmes on the Acropolis monuments in the period of 2010-2015.
The event will not be an evaluation of the completed work and will not discuss restoration proposals for future programmes; these are discussion topics of International Meetings for the restoration of the Acropolis Monuments. The papers will be presented by members of YSMA’s staff during 2010-2015.
Along with the two-day Conference, there will be a photographic exhibition where archival material from the restoration of the Propylaia will be exhibited, focusing on issues related to the human contribution to the restoration works on the monument.
