The Escuela Superior de Conservación y Restauración de Bienes Culturales (School of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage) celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. Created in 1969 at the then Central Institute of Conservation and Restoration (now IPCE), it is the oldest teaching institution in Spain in its field. Since its foundation, it has trained more than 2,500 conservators-restorers who, with their work, contribute to the safeguarding and preservation of our enormous cultural heritage in museums, libraries, archives and other institutions.
To celebrate this important anniversary, with which we are very excited, we have prepared various activities in the educational and scientific field, whose Honorary Presidency has been accepted by H.M. Queen Emeritus Sofia.Doña Sofía. With their realization and implementation, we hope to contribute both to the dissemination of the School and the conservation-restoration profession.
