The aim of the regional project COLLINE, "Preservation of stones by using essentials oils and nanotechnologies", granted by Regione Lazio in the framework of DTC-Lazio, is to develop, test and evaluate a protocol for the preservation of damaged surfaces of monuments under restoration, in real conditions. This goal can be obtained thanks to the synergistic use of innovative materials for conservative restoration, such as nanomaterials and essential oils, together with modern and innovative diagnostic and sensor techniques and the computerization of data, updated in real time, for remote monitoring and management
Two sites in the city of Viterbo, the Basilica of San Francesco alla Rocca and the Fountain of San Faustino (about 1250), were selected for testing both biological materials (i.. essential oils or enzymatic complex) and synthetic materials (i.e. organic polymers), and also nanostructured materials. Planned treatments allow not only immediate recovery of the manufacture, but also its long-lasting protection from outdoor agents, such as moisture and biological attacks.
In addition, the application and testing of integrated innovative techniques, aimed at a digitalization of the interventions and the results of the investigations, have the dual objective of making them usable on a large scale and manageable and monitorable remotely, ensuring, in this way, a considerable simplification of maintenance processes and a consequent minimization of the costs due to them.
