About this lecture
Conservation in archeology is a practice that is undergoing a continuous evolution, both in principles and in techniques. This lecture illustrates the contribution that the CCA, Centro di Conservazione Archeologica, provided to this process during the last 30 years.
The conservation of the Arch of Septimius Severus in the Roman Forum and of the Capitoline Museums in Rome, mosaics conservation in Israel, field conservation in Zeugma, Turkey, the conservation of the mosaic of the Transfiguration in the Monastery of Saint Catherine in Sinai, and the conservation program of the collection of prehistoric sculptures of Monteprama in Sardinia, Italy, are presented and critically reviewed.
