Conservation


Factum Arte consists of a team of artists, technicians and conservators dedicated to digital mediation and to the production of facsimiles as part of a coherent approach to repatriation and non-contact preservation. Bespoke equipment, software and technologies have been designed by Factum Arte to obtain optimum recording results.


Factum Arte’s non-contact methodologies and high resolution facsimiles have had a huge impact on the world of conservation. They have altered not only how facsimiles are considered by the museums and experienced by the public, but they are also helping to establish guidelines for conservation and documentation procedures.

 

Over the past few years Factum Arte has worked with The Musée du Louvre, The British Museum,The Pergamon, Museo del Prado and Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid, the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, the Supreme Council of Antiquities as well as many other museums and institutions in Europe, North Africa and North America.

 

The work produced is the result of in-depth study informed by the assumption that originality is not a fixed state but rather a process, which changes and deepens with time. The importance of a work of art is revealed by its ability to reflect the changing ideas and values that condition its appearance to the way we see it. – Adam Lowe
