Restoration

The Restoration Workshops at the National Roman Museum work to prevent deterioration of, conserve, maintain and restore the works and pieces displayed and those kept in storage through study, analysis and interpretation of data on component materials and operational techniques.

The activities undertaken by the Restoration Workshops are performed on various types of works and decorated surfaces, mostly of archaeological origin, produced using different materials and techniques:

  • stone and mosaic objects
  • frescos and stuccoes
  • objects made of ceramic and glass
  • metal materials and jewellery
  • finds made of bone and ivory
