A group of international students enrolled in the “Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions” study programme (http://www.msc-sahc.org/) visited St. Wenceslas rotunda on Friday, March 11. The study programme is run by the Faculty of Civil Engineering, CTU, Prague, in cooperation with three foreign universities and ITAM CAS under the Erasmus Mundus (Erasmus+) programme. The visit was facilitated by the longstanding cooperation between GEMA ART GROUP Inc., the guarantor of the construction and restoration work on the Rotunda, and Czech Technical University, Prague.
Accompanied by their lecturers, Prof Petr Kabel, doc. Eva Burgetová, and David Biggs P.E., S.E. (USA), the students had the opportunity to learn about the rotunda’s construction history and the nature of the present conservation measures. Ing. Petr Justa and restorer Malvína Pešková provided expert commentary and answered a number of queries.
