In 2013 Italian and American conservators worked on a multi-material conservation project to display an original and rare 17th century Japanese Armor from the Acton Collection. This video was created to show the behind-the-scene, and step-by-step treatment targeted to its installation inside Villa La Pietra. NYU Conservation and Museum Study graduate students were involved in the project.Flyer
