Business program: key points and thoughts, announced on October 23

The business program began with the round table "Actual problems of preservation and restoration of wooden architecture monuments". During the event, specialists from different countries spoke of the effectiveness of governmental efforts and public initiatives in the preservation of wooden heritage, summed up the results of previous years' work and looked for further ways of working.

The speakers pointed out that three forces are involved in the preservation of wooden temples in Russia: the state, local residents and social movements. And if the governmental efforts are focused on the large restoration projects: ensembles of monasteries, kremlins and etc., the public initiatives have become a force to protect small monuments of wooden architecture.

The speakers told about the restoration projects in different parts of Russia, both those that have already been implemented and those that are only planned.

At the seminar "Specifics of Restoration of Monumental Sculpture Monuments Made of Nonferrous Metal: About Patina" the international specialists shared their knowledge about preservation of monuments of monumental sculpture made of non-ferrous metals.
Monumental sculptures made of non-ferrous metals have traditionally been one of the main decorations of the city space. The participants shared their opinions on how to protect and clean the sculptures from patina. They talked about patina properties, specifics of its formation, variety of natural and artificial coatings. An important emphasis was made on the fact that modern means of restoration of monuments must have all quality standards so as not to destroy the original structure of the material.

Panel discussion "The Adaptation of Architectural Monuments, the Art of the Impossible": Technological and Legal Problems in Restoration

The solution to the problem of adaptation determines whether the monument will be comfortable, whether it will preserve its historical value, how much it will cost the investor, and whether the end user will like it. The main difficulty is in the conflict of interests and with the requirements of the constantly changing social structure of the society. Participants of the discussion tried to identify key positions for improving methodological and legal grounds for regeneration, renovation, reconstruction of old buildings and creating prerequisites for long-term operation of cultural heritage without damage to the historic image and valuable architectural and artistic elements.

It is worth mentioning an unusual integration - a concert of Russian romances in the "Amphitheatre", essentially closing the business program of the exhibition.
