With this project, Muneer Elbaz, under the remote guidance of Mr. Giovanni Pagani, senior conservator, and Director Recanati e Restauro, have set up a conservation laboratory in Gaza. The creation of this lab aims to mitigate the expertise and capacity gap in Gaza when it comes to conservation and restoration. To maintain the sustainability of the conservation laboratory, a conservation space with necessary equipment was set up, local supply chains for the equipment were identified, specialized furniture was designed by local artisans, and detailed conservation and training plans ware developed.
