RSF Italy, from the very beginning an active part of the Save Ukraine Art 22 Project for the preservation of works of art in war-torn Ukraine, becomes a fundraising contact for the collection of materials and equipment for restoration.
Restaurateurs Without Borders Italy has been an active and proactive part of the Save Ukraine Art 22 Project since its inception to safeguard works of art in the war-torn land of Ukraine.
After the project presentation meeting on May 31, 2022 in Venice, Italy, the association had already personally engaged in a site visit to LEOPOLIS to view and assess the status of operations to secure and save as many works of art as possible.
THE COLLECTION OF MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT FOR RESTORATION
This led to RSF’s proposal, enthusiastically espoused by Save Ukraine Art 22, to activate a specific aid front for the collection of materials and equipment for restoration: planned restorations that were interrupted because of the war and restorations that became necessary as a result of the war events.
RSF has already helped to send first essential materials, such as painterly retouching colors: the need for any kind of restoration help is very clear in this video-appeal disseminated by Museum Officials in Ukraine.
