Malta International Excellence Courses
Heritage Malta
Palazzo Spinelli Florence
August-October 2006

The 2006 project for the international excellence courses, was born
as a consequence of the partnership and cooperation agreement
between Palazzo Spinelli and Heritage Malta. The agreement is only
part of a vast programme designed to create a series of centres of
high professional standard in the field of conservation and training
in the Mediterranean area. The experience and the know how of more
than 25 years of Palazzo Spinelli, combined with the professionalism
and the modern, well-equipped Conservation Division of Heritage
Malta, come together again for the second year after the 2005
programme in this common project, on the highest levels in terms of
quality, tutors' skills and course programmes.
