EARTHQUAKE DAMAGE TO WORKS OF ART IN THE FRIULI REGION OF ITALY
Paul M. Schwartzbaum, Constance S. Silver, & Carol A. Grissom
5 FUTURE PLANS: A CONSERVATION LABORATORY IN CIVIDALE
Although the Italian authorities have made considerable progress in dealing with the situation, conservation resources remain inadequate to cope with immediate needs.17 Thus. FRIAM is planning a small conservation laboratory staffed with volunteer conservators from the United States.18 Space has been allocated to FRIAM by the Soprintendenza ai Monumenti e Gallerie and the ecclesiastical authorities in the church of San Francesco in Cividale. Objects have been chosen for treatment based on the results of the survey. Fumigation, consolidation, fixation and reassembly will be emphasized.
