Begun in 2008, MOSAIKON is a collaboration of four institutions—the GCI, the Getty Foundation, ICCROM (International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property), and the ICCM (International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics).
The Getty Foundation has focused this effort by developing and funding projects that serve several of the countries with significant museum collections: Algeria, Syria, Jordan, Tunisia, and Libya. Central to this effort is a partnership with the Centro di Conservazione Archeologica (CCA), an organization located outside of Rome and led by Dr. Roberto Nardi, one of the world’s foremost experts in mosaics conservation.
