The activities of Verderame
Verderame promotes cultural activities and initiatives in the social field, organizes training, research and dissemination activities, provides services and activities in the field of historical-artistic studies, diagnostics, conservation, restoration and enhancement and protection of cultural heritage.
Verderame progetto cultura carries out projects related to the restoration and conservation of artistic artefacts, with specific attention to mobile and mural paintings. Verderame progetto cultura organizes events to make the Italian cultural heritage accessible.
For each individual project the Association is able to create a specific team having highly qualified professionals on the staff. Through research, study and continuous updating of the members who work there, advanced solutions are developed in the various phases of the projects.
Particular attention is paid to the choice of products and methodologies that respect work, man and the environment.
All the projects designed and carried out by Verderame aim at contributing to the enhancement of our cultural heritage by spreading knowledge about various aspects, from painting techniques, to diagnostic methodologies, to the different methods of conservation and restoration, arousing curiosity and interest, creating paths to fruition for a wide audience, with particular attention to disability.
Enhancement and wider fruition stem from the integration of the work of art into a broad socio-cultural context, the intersection that brings together all the different perspectives, disciplines, and creative activities that interact with the work of art and transform it into a complex and interdisciplinary cultural event.
In addition, enhancement activities extend to the surrounding territory and help to create added value for the project and the realities connected to it, whether it is of institutional, commercial or tourist nature. The purpose is to build a network of relationships that will guarantee the long-term enhancement of our cultural assets.
Verderame organises guided tours with the objective to help spread knowledge of our cultural heritage.
Targeting any type of audience, both Italian and foreign, these visits offer off-the-beaten-track destinations and select unique and sought-after walks and places that are little known or usually closed to the public. The intent is to enable the visitor to explore and enjoy the artistic and cultural history of the city, rather than dwelling only on the best-known monuments.
Of course, in line with Verderame’s primary interest, there is no shortage of guided visits to the main restoration sites.
Verderame wants to bring its experience to young people who want to construct their career in cultural heritage sector, with a particular attention on tradition but also on new technologies, trying a union between ancient and modern and especially between theory and practice.
Our maxim would be “to learn doing” through the elaboration of workshops inside museums or in partnership with the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and universities.
After years of experience we are aware that surplus value of a global education is losing itself in the educational details; instead, working on cultural heritage means know more dialogues and have a multidisciplinary education to allow to work better between the different careers.
