About this lecture
At the ICCM 9th International Conference held at Hammamet in November 2005, Chiara Zizola presented the project for conservation and maintenance of the floor mosaics of the site of Nora, Sardinia designed by the Centro di Conservazione Archeologica in 2002 for the Soprintendenza Archeologica of Cagliari. Because of the large number of visitors and the site’s marine environment, extensive restorations and reburials were undertaken during 1960s.
The 2002 project was based on the analysis of the state of conservation of the mosaics and of the performance of the previous restorations and reburials. It produced a detailed technical program for actual treatment of the mosaics and a general plan for the ordinary maintenance of the mosaics and the site. Today this project is the basis for the management plan of the Soprintendenza for Nora.
