Partnerships and Networks

Mnemosyne Servizi is pleased to collaborate and be part of the Project Marta – Monitoring Art Archive network, a service focused on the drafting of a technical data sheet created by the curator Benedetta Bodo di Albaretto in collaboration with technicians specialized in restoration, handling and law of art, which arises from the confrontation with the contemporary artist and aims to protect his works over time. Project Marta is an innovative tool in line with the recent provisions of the Mibact regarding museum acquisitions, as the technical sheet includes a series of suggestions and best practices for the use and ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of the work that simplify its conservation, minimise the risks of accidental damage and reduce post-sale misunderstandings.
