Nationality: Japanese
Course: Restoration of Paintings
Program: Internship Program
Period : Jun. 12, 2017 - Jun. 8, 2018

To add more practical experience in my career, I decided to study in Florence, the home of restoration work. I wish to improve my painting restoration techniques by experiencing various types of restoration works as well as learning the latest restoration techniques. I am looking forward to letting you know about my daily life in Florence and my weekend visits to churches, museums, and so on.

より実践的な経験を積むために、修復の都フィレンツェで学ぶことにしました。多くの事例に触れ技術の向上を目指し、最新の処置法や素材などもしっか り勉強していきたいと思います。こちらでの生活の様子やイベント、週末に訪れる教会や美術館などもお伝えしていきたいと思います。宜しくお願いします。

Since last time I finished the supplementation of colors on damages, I will review the details.
The whole impression changes adding colors to small points and blurs carefully.

I have visited the underground ruins of the Vecchio Palace.
In the basement of the palace there is an ancient theater remains of the Roman era from the 1st century to the end of 2nd century and it seems that it was large enough to accommodate 8 thousand to 10 thousand people.
There is a staircase to get down to the basement from the ticket office and it will be a tour through a narrow foothold.
You can see archways, wells, amphora, etc.There is a short video on the way and you can know the structure of the Vecchio Palace and the underground ruins.
