1 - 2 JULY 2021

Given the success of the first edition, we propose a new moment of sharing and exchange, to stimulate synergies among professionals at international level.

The Covid-19 emergency that we are experiencing has disrupted our plans at first, but we are even more convinced of how important this space offered to the younger generations is. The pandemic has offered us not only obstacles but also opportunities to think differently, to think big. That's why this time we have planned new initiatives and in-depth studies related to the Forum in order to enlarge our Community and together build a common vision.

The Young Professionals Forum is an opportunity to reflect on the changes developed during the state of emergency, new needs and new operational contexts. We have witnessed the emergence of new procedures, new tools have been introduced and new skills have emerged.

All this and much more can be discussed together during the Sessions of the Young Professionals Forum.
The 2021 event will consist of two days of presentations, moments of exchange, debates and networking, during which young professionals will have the chance to share and present their activities and researches, meeting established professionals, professors and researchers who will be involved in the different work sessions.




Christian Greco – Director of the MuseoEgizio in Turin, Chiara Mannoni – Marie Curie Research Fellow in art history at the University of Venice, Federica Pozzi - CCR Head of scientific laboratories and Stefania Pandozy – Head of the poly-material laboratory Vatican Museums are the 2021 ambassadors for our Young Professionals Forum!

During the orientation weeks dedicated to the four sessions of our Young Professionals Forum (Conservation ethics and practice, Diagnostics and technologies applied to conservation, Museum professions and History of conservation) our ambassadors launched a challenge to our Young Professionals Community. Now, we are very happy to share with all of you the point of view of our speakers about conservation, society, inclusion and museum professions! Get inspired by our ambassadors!
