I have something interesting to share. I’ve been asked to speak at an international conference for architects sponsored by the Italian government on Feb. 5th 2022. The conference will focus on some of the latest technology and examples of project development which exhibit forward thinking methodologies. I was approached to speak about 45 minutes on any subject or project I want. When I suggested that I speak on the art NFT technology explosion and how the art conservation profession can be an essential member of the team and to the process, the idea and subject were enthusiastically accepted. Based on the professional interests of architects related to historic preservation, I’ll slant the presentation on how it can also benefit the support of historic preservation and restoration projects. The program will be live on Youtube at 9am, Sat. Feb 5th: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRTFyF47Cd000R1d-R_RMiw

There are a number of organizations that benefit from my consultations and participation: Association L.A.CU.S. is a partnership which was organized in 2001 by a group of researchers, teachers, entrepreneurs and cultural sites administrators in the Lombardy Region on Garda Lake.  The desire is to innovate and encourage, in professional ways, the protection, enhancement and management of Cultural Heritage on Lake Garda. Since its inception, numerous activities have been sponsored and promoted including various festivals, meetings held on the restoration/conservation and enhanced use of Garda Lake cultural and landscape heritage and the training of new “Gardesano Cultural Sites Administration” support, a role recognized since 2001 by the Lombardy Region, by the Province of Brescia and by the Garda Lake Community.

The modern restoration site is now present a multiplicity of professional figures called to interact between them and with the management and protection bodies. In this perspective it becomes more and more urgent a professional capacity that is not exclusively relating to one’s own technical knowledge, but also and above all the ability to make them available of the subjects involved with a view to sharing knowledge at all levels. The same “knowledge” on the theme of enhancement and conservation of Cultural Heritage must always be under the lens of the operator called to operate in a context so delicate in a perspective of continuous training and comparison with operators from other countries as well. For this reason she felt the need to organize a series of meetings for discussion of different cultures and professionalisms as a starting point to tell different approaches that can expand awareness about the value and delicacy of the conservation and restoration of the artistic heritage. Everything is organized in collaboration with the restorer Luisa Pari and the Disvelarte working group: Restoration & Conservation, the Proloco of Lonato del Garda (BS) and the Madonna del Corlo Foundation; will broadcast live on the youtube channel “Associazione L.A.CU.S.” from the Church of the B.V. of the Corlo in Lonato del Garda (BS). The presentation of the project is scheduled for Saturday 15 January 2022 at 11, with a online press conference, broadcast on Youtube channel L.A.CU.S. Association  A series of four meetings will be transmitted, online (Youtube channel “L.A.CU.S. Association”) about the different approaches to the theme of conservation between France, America and Italy.  The initiative is accredited to the release of n. 4 cfp with compulsory participation in the whole cycle of meetings for P.P.C. Architects

Can NFT sale proceeds be programed to benefit historic preservation projects?
