Abstract

The Morgantina silver treasure belonging to the Archaeological Museum of Aidone (Sicily) wasinvolved in a three-dimensional (3-D) survey and diagnostics campaign for monitoring the collection overtime in anticipation of their temporary transfer to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for a periodof 4 years. Using a multidisciplinary approach, a scientific and methodological protocol based on noninvasivetechniques to achieve a complete and integrated knowledge of the precious items and their conservation state,as well as to increase their valorization, has been developed. All acquired data, i.e., 3-D models, ultravioletfluorescence, x-ray images, and chemical information, will be made available, in an integrated way, within aweb-oriented platform, which will present an in-progress tool to deepen existing archaeological knowledgeand production technologies and to obtain referenced information of the conservation state before and aftermoving of the collection from its exposure site.
