Claudio Santancini

Claudio Santancini, born 1985, is a film restorer and archivist. His focus on film restoration is the meeting point of his studies at the University of Bologna (Bachelor in film studies in 2009) and his working experience in fine arts restoration (several projects between 2008 and 2011). Following down this path, he did a master in Preservation, Philology and Restoration of Film at the University of Udine. At the same time (2011–2013) he also worked in the film and video restoration laboratory “La Camera Ottica” (Gorizia) where he specialized in digital film restoration. Since 2013 he works in the Digital Restoration Dpt. of the Austrian Film Museum (Vienna), where he follows every step of the projects, from digitization to access and long-term preservation.
