Proyecto en el exterior: Villa Napoli: Las fincas árabo-normandas de Palermo (siglos X-XII).

Proyecto en el exterior «Villa Napoli: Las fincas árabo-normandas de Palermo (siglos X-XII)» del Laboratorio de arqueología y arquitectura de la ciudad, LAAC de la Escuela de Estudios Árabes y miembro de la Plataforma. Este proyecto está dirigido por Julio Navarro Palazón.

Se trata de un proyecto subvencionado a través de la convocatoria intramural de arqueología en el exterior del CSIC, que cuenta con el respaldo científico del proyecto del Plan Estatal de Investigación Científica titulado Almunias medievales en el Mediterráneo: historia y conservación de los paisajes culturales periurbanos. Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación. Agencia Estatal de Investigación. Proyectos de I+D+i, PID2019-111508GB-I00. 1/1/2020 – 1/1/2023. 

Este proyecto de investigación se ha desarrollado en el marco de un protocolo de colaboración, firmado en 2020 entre la Soprintendenza dei Beni Culturali e Ambientali de Palermo y la Escuela de Estudios Árabes de Granada (CSIC), y como parte de la obra de restauración de Villa Napoli (Palermo).

En estas fincas es posible identificar, además de los espacios con funciones agropecuarias, diversos tipos de jardines, grandes albercas y unas arquitecturas destinadas al solaz y a la exhibición del poder de sus promotores. Solían ser segundas residencias, por lo que su emplazamiento, por lo general, se hacía en las proximidades de los centros urbanos en los que residían sus propietarios, siempre que fueran capaces de aportar y almacenar la suficiente cantidad de agua que asegurara el riego de huertas y jardines.

El estudio de su organización y funcionamiento es un tema histórico de primer orden, pues demuestra el interés de los estamentos privilegiados por la creación de nuevos espacios de cultivo, tanto de regadío como de secano, en los que se desarrolló una agricultura muy rentable, destinada esencialmente a abastecer a los mercados locales. Su proliferación constituye, por tanto, un aspecto fundamental de la revolución económica plenomedieval, estrechamente relacionado con el crecimiento demográfico y el desarrollo urbano y comercial a partir del siglo X.Villa napoli.jpg

Durante la ocupación árabe, Palermo (Sicilia, Italia) se convirtió en una de las grandes capitales del Mediterráneo, debido a su ubicación estratégica entre Oriente y Occidente y al papel que jugó como lugar de encuentro entre la Europa cristiana y el mundo musulmán. (…)

La campaña de excavaciones arqueológicas en Villa Napoli incluyó la prospección general de la finca y los trabajos en la Cuba Soprana, la Piccola Cuba y el área del jardín romántico. Obras excepcionales que funden estilos arquitectónicos árabes y normandos.

Espectroscopía de ruptura inducida por láser (LIBS) en el Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural de España (IPCE)

Investigadores del Instituto de Química Física Rocasolano del CSIC (IQFR – CSIC) y del Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural de España (IPCE) están colaborando en el análisis de una selección de monedas provenientes del pecio de Nuestra Señora de Las Mercedes y de piezas metálicas de El Tesoro de la Guerra Civil. El estudio está enmarcado en los proyectos SCOCHLAS Estudio y conservación del patrimonio cultural con láseres/Study and Conservation of Cultural Heritage with Lasers. (PID2019-104124RB-100) e IPERION HS (Integrating Platforms for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage Science). H2020-INFRAIA-2019-1, y refleja también las colaboraciones establecidas dentro de la PTI-PAIS.

Para su desarrollo, los miembros del Laboratorio Láser de Ciencia del Patrimonio del IQFR – CSIC han trasladado sus equipos a las instalaciones del IPCE para habilitar un laboratorio móvil. El objetivo del trabajo es la asignación de los elementos traza presentes en los metales de las monedas con el fin de identificar diferencias composicionales entre las distintas procedencias. Para ello, se ha utilizado la espectroscopía de ruptura inducida por láser (LIBS), una técnica que permite el reconocimiento de los elementos traza a partir de su composición elemental. Asimismo, los datos extraídos mediante LIBS de elementos mayoritarios y minoritarios serán comparados con datos existentes en el IPCE de análisis anteriores realizados en trabajos de restauración-conservación de los bienes.

Cultural heritage conservation science has new perspectives for antimicrobials nanomaterials.

A recent scientific review published in Chem and participated for some of our scientifc members brings new perspectives for antimicrobial nanomaterials in cultural heritage conservation

Conservers, restorers, private collectors, museums and every cultural heritage expert is aware of new trends in artimicrobial nanomaterials applied against biodeterioration. This review will provide some hightlights, recommendations, , points of concern and red flags.

You can have access to the review here.

The irreparable damage to unique artifacts made by biodeterioration

Abstract: «The biodeterioration of artistic and architectural heritage represents a serious and recurring problem for museums, local authorities, and private collectors alike, where irreparable damage to unique artifacts can result in immeasurable losses to our shared cultural heritage. Here, we present an overview of the current trends in antimicrobial products used to protect heritage items from microbial colonization and prevent their deterioration. From a conservation-restoration standpoint, we contrast and compare traditional antimicrobial products with the state of the art in antimicrobial nanomaterials applied in the heritage conservation field, highlighting the promising potential of various different nanomaterials, as well as points of concern and clear red flags from some of the emerging research. Through an examination of the growing body of research in the academic literature we offer recommendations and practical advice on selecting appropriate microbiological assays and characterization techniques to better evaluate the in vitro and in situ antimicrobial properties of nanomaterials.»
