The laboratory has an interdisciplinary approach and has at its disposal the most modern technologies for performing, where possible also in situ, non-invasive or micro-invasive investigations on any kind of art work of a historic-artistic interest aimed at the conservation, dating, recognition of materials and increasing the technical-artistic and stylistic knowledge of the works, to arrive at a precise attribution.

From October 2014, thanks to its collaboration with the Madrid based Factum Foundation, Lucida Lab Milano, a laboratory specialising in digital technology and possessing a high resolution Lucida 3D scanner, is now active at the Open Care offices.

This innovative instrument permits the non-invasive digitalisation of the surface of art works such as paintings, bas-reliefs and fabrics, with a very high quality of data acquisition and return.
