MOLAB at Villa Sciarra in Rome, Italy

Donatella Buttiglione, art conservator, presented a proposal (VSWP) to MOLAB asking for some non-invasive analysis to apply on the whitewashed wall paintings in the reading room of the historical library located in Casino Nobile of Villa Sciarra in Rome. The villa is currently the headquarter of the Italian Institute of German Studies in Italy.  The reading room corresponds to the lodge commissioned by Cardinal Antonio Barberini in the 17th century.

The aim of the access is to integrate the results of previous investigations with those of new analysis on the paintings to have a general overview of the state of preservation and to verify the extension of the concealed painting and the presence of eventual lacunas.
