Article
In this study, the investigation of the oil painting on canvas I Tesori del Mare made by Plinio Nomellini in 1901 is presented. The aim of the research was threefold: the examination of the state of conservation in view of the restoration treatment, together with the identification of the causes of degradation and the study of the artistic techniqu...
Article
In the last ten years in Italy a great artistic ferment arose around the works of Street Art; initially born spontaneously, often unauthorized and therefore illegal, this kind of expression entered the urban context modifying its relationship with art. This artistic phenomenon has generated discussions, controversies and has created an unremitting...

Urban art is a form of artistic visual expression and communication that is created in the street and generally in the public dimension of urban spaces. Often these kinds of artworks are in outdoor environments, and they usually suffer from atmospheric weathering and anthropic vandalism. Recently, several strategies have been used to limit or remov...

By meansof combined use of non-destructive and non-invasive in situ analysis, diagnostic research has been carried outon pigments and underlayersused to fabricate anoil painting representing the "Morte di Santa Orsola", corresponding to the second half of XVIII century, from the churchofSaints Leonardo andErasmo (Roccagorga-Latina, Italy). The aim...
Article
Copper alloys objects can deteriorate their conservation state through irreversible corrosion. Since in the cultural heritage field every artefact is unique and any loss irreplaceable, solutions for conservation are needed. Hence, there is the necessity to stop the corrosion process with a suitable cleaning and conservation process to avoid further...

The possibility of contemporary mural paintings to be “tagged” by vandals, with spray and/or markers, represents a serious problem for the conservation of urban art. The present study aims to define the applicability of a protective coating on murals’ surface to preserve them against vandalism. The research has been focused on anti-graffiti product...
Article
When the restoration of archaeological metal artifacts is considered, the reconstruction and chromatic treatment of the gaps often determine the correct reading of the object, by suggesting its original morphology and external coloring as linked to the degraded surfaces.However, for such a kind of artifact, it is particularly frequent to deal with...
Article
This study exposes the process to identify the optimum optical tag profile to be used for monitoring the minimum relative displacement of two areas of the artwork. The purpose is to realize an efficient, precise, and accurate structural monitoring system with minimal invasiveness. In particular, it is designed to determine the enlargement of a crac...

This paper deals with the formulation of innovative mortars for the consolidation of archeological structures in underwater environment. The research was conducted within the frame of the MaTaCoS project (Advanced materials and technologies applied to the conservation of underwater cultural heritage) funded by MISE (Italian Ministry of Economic Dev...
Article
In cultural heritage, several initiatives are promoted to transfer the green chemistry in replacing traditional and toxic methods and products, and in ensuring safety of both artworks and restorers during cleaning operations. This study is aimed to establish the validity of new green solvents to replace toxic solvents, commonly used, to remove old...
Article

The task of the conservator, in cooperation with the archaeologist, is to analyse archaeological material from an historical and technical standpoint in such a way that the act of conserving prior to presentation of an artefact is designed and executed for the specific artefact. This intervention must be carried out in a competent manner, i.e. the...

In recent years, the new conservation challenge consists to preserve contemporary mural paintings by Grafti vandalism or tagging. Contemporary mural pantings are complex artworks for several reasons, including the heterogeneous materials used, the variation of varnishes, the diferent types of substrate.

Article
Contemporary mural paintings are complex artworks for several reasons, including the heterogeneity of the materials used to make them, and the different types of substrate on which the painting layers can be applied. Currently we are focused on a technical-scientific research aimed to solve the issues related to the long-term care and maintenance o...
Article
It is possible to create a museum where there are libraries instead of bookshops, craft shops instead of gift shops, where the employees are the citizens, the educational projects and the night events are linked together and art is a vehicle for narration and regeneration. This is SLUMM, San Lorenzo Urban Memory Museum. The aim of the museum is to...

Checking the irreversible process of clean-up is a delicate task that requires a work of synthesis between theoretical knowledge and practical experience, to define an effective operating protocol on a limited patch area to be extended later to the entire artefact’s surface. In this paper, we present a new, quick, semi-automated 3D photogrammetry-b...
Article
In the field of restoration of cultural heritage, it has been developed coatings containing nanoparticles having multifunctional features, to protect stone materials against environmental degrading agents. Detecting such nanoparticle concentration within the coating, can represent a challenging issue because its monitoring over time can provide ins...

In the field of stone restoration, an unresolved issue is represented by the removal of iron stains from stone substrates. This study deals with a comparative study of the efficacy of several formulations in removing iron-stains from marble. These formulations are mostly based on chelating agents (ammonium thioglycolate, ammonium citrate, L-cystein...

The electromagnetic scattered field by the stained glass window of the Magdalene Chapel of the Lower Basilica in Assisi is calculated by means of frequency domain numerical simulations and by making use of the scattered-field formulation. Two different polarizations to determine the most useful in terms of scattered field sensibility is considered....

This work concerns a conservative and environmental study of the first floor of Palazzo Soliano, an historical building located next to the Orvieto's cathedral which is temporarily used as a storage area by the M.O.D.O. (Museo dell'Opera del Duomo di Orvieto). The cultural properties housed in building consist of heterogeneous materials (textile, c...
