Villa La Pietra is the outstanding historical villa and home of the New York University Florence program. Bequeathed to NYU in 1994 by Sir Harold Acton, the Florentine study abroad campus consists of 5 historic villas and 57 acres of gardens and olive groves. Villa La Pietra, the Acton Collection, and the Garden are maintained as they were by the Acton family and serve as an inspiration to all who live and study on the campus.
Japanese Samurai Armor Conservation and Temporary Display
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.
