Abstract

Cultural property is the heritage that defines and constructs our identity. We share responsibility for its protection. The important thing is the approach to cultural property and its respective protection and restoration. This article tries to understand the mechanisms used to prepare facilities for restoration properly. Trends and examples of countries that have faced similar challenges in protecting the cultural heritage we face in Ukraine are discussed. The article describes a new holistic approach to researching and preserving cultural property called 'restoration design.' The role of the art restorer as an interdisciplinary specialist, who can be a link between representatives of different disciplines of science and art in restoration, has been determined. This new approach to protecting and preserving cultural property, which has existed for many years in Western Europe, was also applied and discussed in concrete examples of restoration projects in Western Ukraine. It has been determined that such a model certainly improves the overall approach to the preparatory process and the implementation of works related to the protection of material heritage. The increasing role of the art restorer is perfectly consistent with this pattern. The restorer ensures a holistic approach to the cultural heritage object concerning its historical and artistic values. Proven models from other countries can be the basis for further discussion of the future of restoration in Ukraine.
