Nanotecnology in restoration: cleaning and consolidation of stonework

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper describes a project using nanotechnology to improve the characteristics of reliability, compatibility and resistance over a period of time, of products for the restoration and conservation of structures of historic-artistic value, through experimentation with nano-structured materials. The research project specifically tackles two issues, with regard to cleaning and consolidation, testing the new products on samples of stone material taken from the archaeological site at Morgantina (in the centre of Sicily).
