Studies for the preservation of historical monuments and buildings


The preservation and cultural valorization of historical monuments and buildings are easier when their construction details and materials are known. In most cases, such knowledge can only be gained through a detailed characterization of their materials, which is made by tactile-visual inspection, on-site tests and laboratory analyses of carefully selected samples.

The combination of investigation data and historical analysis of the building or monument provides essential information to shed light on the causes and processes of deterioration and to select the proper techniques and materials for its preservation and restoration, as well as for periodic maintenance programs.
