About this lecture
On Tuesday the 23rd of May 2017, in occasion of the annual conference of the Unione Internazionale degli Istituti di Archeologia, Storia e Storia dell’Arte in Rome, a study meeting was held at the Accademia dei Lincei on the theme “Conservation and Heritage Management: An International Responsibility “. Roberto Nardi at the end of the meeting gave a lecture on the conservation of the Prehistoric Sculptures of Monteprama, Sardinia, Italy.
The collection, discovered in 1974, went through a long and complex conservation intervention, promoted by Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici per le Province di Sassari e Nuoro. During the project CCA conservators had to deal with over 5000 stone fragments, that have been carefully documented and assembled. Eventually, they comprised a collection of 38 statues representing archers, boxers, warriors and models of Nuraghe.
