This work deals with the conservation of one of the largest land art works in the world. It is a sort of white shroud laid on the ruins of the town of Gibellina, Sicily, after the tremendous earthquake of January 1968. The most significant aspects of the degradation phenomena observed on site are related to some faults in the construction, due to the prevailing of the artistic requirements over the good rules of concrete technology. Furthermore the guidelines for both a conservation intervention and the subsequent maintenance of the art work are also indicated.
