Bring a fresco back to life with Art Restoration in Puglia, Italy

If you’ve ever visited a major art gallery or museum, glanced at a masterpiece and thought, ‘It’s nice… but I think I could make it better with a few adjustments here…’ then, please - STOP!


Not only will this spontaneous restoration work completely ruin the work of art, but it will also have you tasered by that burly security fellow quicker than you can say Mona Lisa - lemon squeeza.

However, if the process of bringing an authentic work of art back to life is something you have always considered fascinating, an organised restoration in the heart of south Italy is worth adding to your bucket list. 

In fact, bucket-schmucket - Art Restoration in Puglia, Italy is an experience you should book now! Go on.


But what will I be restoring?

If the closest you have come to restoring artwork is through a Photoshop session, get ready for a more wholesome and rewarding experience as the art experts at Messors allow you to help restore and conserve genuine ancient frescos.

Yes.  We said GENUINE.


Set in various locations across sun-baked Puglia – often described as ‘the New Tuscany’ – this 15-day trip offers you the once-in-a-lifetime chance to get up close and personal with ancient frescos, equipped with expert instruction and tools.

And (we hate to use the cliche) there's more! In addition to being let loose on fresco restoration work in both underground caves and in dedicated restoration labs, you will also get to enjoy the sun, culture and as much pizza (also genuine) as you can eat in the sleepy southern Italian region.

Of course, when you return home, you'll be wanting to uninstall Photoshop from your laptop – you know it just won’t be the same after this!

In Short

  • Soak up the sun, culture and pizza with two weeks in 'the new Tuscany'!
  • Get up close and personal with ancient frescos
  • Learn and test new art restoration skills
  • Pizza… did we mention pizza?
