The Cultural Heritage at Politecnico di MilanoIn order to make available to Institutions and public and private Entities the whole spectrum of competences, skills and technologies from the different Departments for the conservation and promotion of Cultural Heritage, the Politecnico di Milano has recently established the Cultural Heritage Centre. The Centre is a coordination structure, representing professors and researchers for the execution of research and educational projects, and promoting the dissemination and transfer of results and technological innovation in this field.
Cultural Heritage is a strategic resource not only for the social and economic development, but also for the improvement of the quality of life. The protection, conservation and enhancement of these Heritage involves a wide range of disciplines and techniques, belonging to different but complementary research areas. Historical and material knowledge, diagnosis of degradation, durability, monitoring of decay processes and conservation strategies are allowed by interdisciplinary cooperation. In addition, economic planning, territorial planning and landscaping, diffusion and propagation of knowledge, are crucial aims for the enhancement of archaeological, architectural, historical and artistic heritage.
