I’m Milica N. Popovic, the restorer.

About Me…

Milica was born in Belgrade, Serbia in 1967. There, in July of 1993, she obtained a degree in Technology from Belgrade University, with equivalency at the University of Milan. The same year she leaves her native Belgrade for Italy, where, in Florence, at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, she moves her first steps as a student in the world of art restoration. It was an intense period… she was working as a volunteer, but this gave its fruits: she will later become a teacher of restoration of paper documents and parchments right there, at the BNC of Florence and in later years at the Accademia di Brera, in Milan. These experiences help her to discover her love for reclaiming the artistic and humanistic heritage of the Renaissance.
In April of 1998, she obtains recognition as a restorer of ancient texts from the Institute of Book Pathology of Rome.

Di Me…

In 1999 she opens her own workshop: L’Incunabolo, at number 29 of Piazzale Donatello at the Bottega degli Artisti, the historical building intended to house artist’s workshops since its origin. Here Milica can give full expression to her love for ancient texts, manuscripts and incunabula, codices and old and rare books in print, thus giving new life to things otherwise condemned to decay and vanish. Soon she will get the prestigious job of restoring thirty codices compiled by Galileo Galilei and other scientists working in Florence at the Medicean Accademia del Cimento.
