The 10th Conference for the Conservation of Mosaics

January 21, 2008

The 10th Conference of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics (ICCM) will be held in Palermo (Italy), October 20-26, 2008. 

The theme of the 10th conference is Conservation: An act of Discovery.

It aims to stress how through a systematic and full documentation during the process of conservation, one has theMosaic occasion to make observations that deepen one’s understanding of a mosaic, the technique or techniques involved in its execution, the archaeological context in which it was found and the historical vicissitudes it has experienced.

Three sub-themes address issues that are very much on the frontline today: a/ the cost of maintenance of mosaics conserved in situ; b/ the large-scale projects of mosaic and site conservation; and c/ the training of mosaic conservators.
It is also planned to organize two round-tables on related issues during the conference.

The opening session will take place in the magnificent Palazzo dei Normanni, and the formal sessions will be held in the Albergo dei Poveri in Palermo, an imposing 18th century building, presently under restoration.
