In Italy, the basic laws UNI10829 and UNI 10969 impose a reference methodology for the in-field measurement and data analysis. This paper reports the firstresults of a measuring campaign, carried out according to the indications of the aforesaid standards, aimed at the investigation ofthe environmental conditions of the wooden ceilings in two rooms of ‘‘Palazzo Steri’’, an ancient building in the city of Palermo.r 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
