The course prepares theoretically and methodologically students to work with objects that have the status of a cultural monument. The specifics of all stages of preservation are presented – from the study and the determination of the complex cultural and historical value, through design, to the implementation of the projects. Students are introduced to the basic concepts in preservation as "restoration", "conservation", "exposition", "original", "authenticity", "degrees of intervention in the monument" etc. Knowledge of the legal protection of the monuments is given and the main national and international normative documents are presented. The best European practices and innovations of different objects and methods of protection are shown, such as "cultural routes", "cultural landscapes", "digital heritage", "education in preservation", "heritage at risk", etc.
