The International School and Restoration Lab of Russian Icons was officially inaugurated in 2002, applying restoration techniques borrowed from the Restoration Laboratory of the Russian State Museum in St Petersburg and using natural and reversible materials. In addition to the restoration, the Lab is specialized in authentication’s certificates, recognition and dating of the authenticity of an icon, identification of the area of origin, description of subject and style of the work.

The International School selects its favourite supporters among those who, either enthusiasts or scholars, want to enter the world of the icon, or among the workers in the sector (antique dealers, restorers, gallery owners, artists). Indeed, it organizes theoretical-practical courses of restoration and icon painting, as well as courses on specific topics (techniques for gilding, engraving the gold background, painting miniatures).
