Arte, legge, restauro
L’Europa e le prime prassi per la protezione del patrimonio
This volume collects the outcomes of the conference Art – Law – Restoration, that was held at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice in July 2021. Through the studies outlined by several international scholars, crucial aspects of the history of heritage protection and restoration in sixteenth- to nineteenth-century Europe are reconsidered, combining different disciplines and geographical contexts into a comparative perspective. The systems elaborated in the early modern States to preserve artefacts, monuments, and antiquities are evaluated following multifarious approaches – including archaeology, art history, history of law, social history, and the history of museums. Particular consideration is given to the practices established in the Kingdom of Naples, Spain, the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, Greece, Prussia, the Papal States, Portugal, and the Scandinavian Countries to protect what they thought of as ‘heritage’ respectively. The project LawLove and the publication of this volume are supported by the European Commission (Marie Skłodowska-Curie project no. 837857).
