There were numerous questions from participants and the resulting discussion was very interesting. The second day was devoted to the materials degradation in contemporary murals and analytical techniques for their characterization with Michela Berzioli (AN.T.A RES srl) and Ilaria Saccani, then moving on to the intervention phases, with the reports of Davide Riggiardi and Simone Parma on consolidation and Ilaria Saccani on cleaning topic.
