2021-2024 PRIN-2020 SUPERSTAR, Sustainable Preservation Strategies for Street Art - sets as a goal the definition of innovative guidelines for the preservation strategy of street art, aimed at safeguarding its powerful social and cultural message in the urban context. A combination of non-invasive and micro-invasive techniques are optimized to shed light on the chemical-physical properties and vulnerability aspects of modern paint materials that constitute street artworks. The studies performed in the laboratory on reference materials are supported by research performed on relevant case studies, located in different environmental urban contexts. The focus is on the materials used by the artists and the environmental risks and anthropic stresses. [Details]

2022-2024 Progetto di Ricerca di Ateneo dell’Università di Pisa PRA 2020 "Microwave assisted approaches for heritage science, environment, and energy" (codice progetto PRA_ 2022_58).

2023-2026: Progetto Lasering-ph Lasering-ph is a multidisciplinary project, focused on defining the ideal conditions of laser radiation as a cleaning method of cave and tempera mural paintings, fulfilling the standards defined by the code of ethics for the practice of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage.Lasering is a research project on the laser painting interaction. The objective is to advance in the knowledge of the interaction between laser radiation and ancient Pictorial Heritage. Laser ablation allows the removal of surface films in a localized, gradual, and selective manner without waste generation. This procedure should follow a clean technology that helps to minimize industrial emissions. [Details]
