CONSERVATION OF WALL PAINTINGS
The conservation of wall paintings, as integrated wholes or in- dividual representations, requires a comprehensive action plan.
This is a coordinated sequence of steps taken that, apart from the obvious, observable applications, such as cleaning and aesthetic restoration, extends to the internal and obscure strati- fication of mortars and masonry, aiming at the safety, stability, and durability of the mural ensemble.
The large scale of the projects, the technical difficulties, and the complex pathology of the monuments, complicate interven- tion even more..
