Charisma Final Event
The final event of the CHARISMA project will take place in Firenze, Italy on March 5th and 6th, 2014 at the Auditorium of Sant’Apollonia (via San Gallo 25).
The conference aims at presenting outcomes and activities of the FP7 CHARISMA Project, highlighting new research and innovative and effective approaches for the study, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage.
To highlight the importance of four and half years activities, the project conclusions will be positively associated with the achieving impacts, and activities and results will be presented from an “outreaching” perception with interventions given by external international experts.
The meeting will also introduce the key outlooks for a critical engagement of a common platform for Cultural Heritage Conservation/Restoration in Europe.
A poster’ session will be organised to better visualise the results of the project activities and a CHARISMA publications’ corner will be also arranged (Caravaggio, Renaissance Workshop, Leonardo).
The CHARISMA final event is open and the entrance is free. Registration is however required.
We look forward to seeing you in Florence.

Auditorium di Sant’Apollonia, via San Gallo 25a, Firenze, Italy
The Auditorium is located inside the former Benedictine convent of Sant’Apollonia, which was founded in 1339 and later enlarged in the 15th century. Around 1447 Andrea del Castagno frescoed the end wall of the refectory with scenes of the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, Deposition and Resurrection.
The large cloister on two levels is one of the largest of Firenze and dates to the XV century enlargement.
The former church of the cloister now hosts the auditorium.
