Summer school

Speaking with conservator-restorer Giulia Russo

During the five-week summer school, organised by RestART Beirut with the support of the Swiss Embassy in Lebanon, students along with mentors from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) and the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK) worked hand in hand on the restoration of stucco in the Sursock Palace.

Giulia Russo, a conservator-restorer at SUPSI, shared her experience of mentoring students and what this project means to her.
