  • The Origins of Art

    • Authors: Aleksandre P. Lobodanov
      Pages: 33 - 55
      Abstract: The origins of artistic activities or rather art, and in recent decades the processing and consolidation of a new field in art history, art semiotics, are grouped together in the semiotic systems of applied and non-applied arts.In this paper, in particular, an analysis is made of the non-applied arts, in which non-verbal signs are used to express the form of human thought.The discussion focuses on the origins of non-applied arts, the image-forming process, the psychology of perception, the perception of sound and reproduction of sounds, the development of music and the development of dance in their entirety, as an expression of the inner condition that influences the body through movement: it thus provides a valuable contribution to the study of the non-applied arts.

      Abstract: The historical-artistic and technical-analytical study, concerning and taking up again the “Mona Lisa”, covered the comparison of some art works executed by different au- thors at different times. In relation to this, it is necessary to distinguish two versions of the “Mona Lisa” of Isleworth and the Louvre, both executed by Leonardo in different periods, from the copies of one version or the other or a combination of both.

  • Investigation on the Role of Agitation in the Desalination Process of

    • Authors: Mohammad C. Amiri, Somayeh Noghani, Mohammad Amin Emami
      Pages: 111 - 132
      Abstract: The porous structure of excavated ancient potteries (especially potteries with a firing temperature below 1000 ̊C) are in general saturated with salts. Desalination is therefore one of the primary steps in the conservation and restoration process of historical porous materials. Since salinity can cause significant damage to ceramic artifacts, they must be subjected to a careful process of desalination. As water-sensitive clay-based ceramics may deteriorate or collapse during long periods of contact with water, alternative desalination methods should be identified to minimize potential damage to the pottery material. New methods such as raising the temperature of the washing water and/or using surfactants have also been suggested as alternative techniques in the desalination process to avoid long periods of contact time. In this study, acceleration of the desalination process based on a unified theoretical formulation is discussed and the role of agitation to enhance the rate of desalination is demonstrated. It was found that the main cause of deficiency in current desalination processes is due to a stagnant liquid layer near the interface of the ancient object and the water, known as concentration polarization. Agitation enhances the efficiency of desalination by minimizing the thickness of the concentration polarization layer.

  • Integrating Building Information Modeling and Augmented Reality to Improve
           Investigation of Historical Buildings

    • Authors: Francesco Chionna, Francesco Argese, Vito Palmieri, Italo Spada, Lucio Colizzi
      Pages: 133 - 163
      Abstract: This paper describes an experimental system to support investigation of historical buildings using Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Augmented Reality (AR). The system requires the use of an off-line software to build the BIM representation and defines a method to integrate diagnostic data into BIM. The system offers access to such information during site investigation using AR glasses supported by marker and marker-less technologies. The main innovation is the possibility to contextualize through AR not only existing BIM properties but also results from non-invasive tools. User evaluations show how the use of the system may enhance the perception of engineers during the investigation process.

  • Conservation of Our Planetary Home. The “Sabbath” as an appropriate
           paradigm for total sustainability

    • Authors: Joshtrom Isaac Kureethadam
      Pages: 165 - 190
      Abstract: In the context of the contemporary ecological crisis, we stand in need of a more comprehensive understanding of sustainability, weaving together the cosmic, the human, and the divine dimensions of the real. The path towards the conservation of our planetary home through total sustainability requires, first of all that we regain a profound sense of harmony with the rest of creation. Secondly, it calls for a real sense of solidarity with our fellow-humans, especially the poor and weak among us. Finally, true sustainability can ultimately be founded on peace with the Creator, the very ground of our being, who holds all things together and sustains them in His infinite love. Such a holistic perspective of sustainability is essential if we are to succeed in conserving our planetary home for ourselves and for future generations. The author concludes by presenting the biblical institution of ‘Sabbath’ as an appropriate paradigm for a holistic understanding of sustainability.

  • The Fashion and Sartorial Documentation Section of the Davia Bargellini
           Museum of Bologna. History, conservation and exhibition

    • Authors: Silvia Battistini, Giancarlo Benevolo
      Pages: 191 - 233
      Abstract: In recent years, the Davia Bargellini Museum of Bologna has set up the Fashion and sartorial documentation section thanks to donations from private donors and tailor shops that have closed down. To date, the core collection consists of documentary materials (fashion sketches, fabric models, patterns, photos from fashion shows, fabric samples, magazines and catalogues), lace and trimmings (finishing touches and entire products), lingerie and linen (personal undergarments and items for the house), and many outfits accompanied by complementary items and accessories (child, male and female accessories) dating from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first century. This contribution, besides defining the context of the fashion and tailoring collection in a museum of applied arts, also illustrates how the section within the museum was formed (history), problems and methods of cataloguing current materials (conservation), and the contents of the first communications to the public (exhibition). The collection highlights the relationship between the designers who created fashion and the local tailors who interpreted the designs which were in vogue. The collection makes it possible to explore the social history and the production of tailor shops seen as the artisan origin of Italian style, or “Made in Italy.”

  • Bioremoval of Sulphate Layer from a 15th Century Polychrome Marble

    • Authors: Manuela Martino, Salvo Schiavone, Franco Palla, Lorella Pellegrino, Evelina De Castro, Annalisa Balloi
      Pages: 235 - 252
      Abstract: This case study shows the application of viable bacterial cells for removing undesired deposits from the surface of a stone polychrome bas-relief, exhibited at the Interdisciplinary Gallery of Sicily Palazzo Abatellis (Palermo). Diagnostic studies carried out during the restoration were aimed at characterizing the technique of execution and understanding the degradation processes. The results of the XRF and FTIR investigations showed that on large areas of the artifact’s surface, stratified deposits with a significant presence of sulfates were present. For bioremoval of the deposits, viable bacterial cells belonging to the species Desulfovibrio vulgaris, were utilized in gelled solution form, evaluating and comparing the effectiveness of this cleaning with that of the desulfating agents usually employed. The results demonstrate that by using the colonised substrate as a nutritional source in their natural metabolic processes, this bacterial species can be used to obtain high efficiency and selectivity of action, representing a valid alternative to the use of traditional chemical agents.

      Abstract: Intertextual reading of the cantos I-IV of Dante’s Inferno, made in the light of the Aristotelian concepts of magnanimity and pusillanimity, and that the poet and person of Dante cleverly declines and dramatizes, finally leading up to his self-exaltation as a magnanimous among the magnanimous.

  • Woodworm Disinfestation of Wooden Artifacts by Vacuum Techniques

    • Authors: Giuseppe Chidichimo, Francesco Dalena, Amerigo Beneduci
      Pages: 267 - 280
      Abstract: Wooden artifacts are subject to being heavily damaged by the attack of worms which develop in the wood through the eggs deposited by adult pests before their final transformation into flying insects. Among the most dangerous species are xylophagous (wood-boring) insects, whose larvae are responsible for one of the most efficient wood-destroying mechanisms in wooden cultural heritage. Their elimination has always been a huge problem for the conservation of wood. In this work, we present the experimentation of a simple vacuum technique to disinfest wood from the larval Hylotrupes bajolus. We will also introduce the possibility of treating large-sized wooden artifacts by means of a special vacuum chamber.

  • The Scenography of Serpotta Stuccoes Revisited - Material and Form

    • Authors: Salvatore Barba, Francesco Di Paola, Giovanni Rizzo
      Pages: 281 - 313
      Abstract: The material that lies beneath the smooth shining surface of the stuccoes of the Serpotta family who used to work in Sicily from 1670 to 1730, has been thoroughly studied in previous papers, disclosing the deep, albeit empirical, knowledge of materials science that guided the artists in creating their masterpieces. In this work, attention is focused on the solid perspective and on the scenographic sculpture by Giacomo Serpotta, who is acknowledged as the leading exponent of the School. The study deals with some particular works of the artist, the “small-scaled plastic theatres”, so-called “teatrini”, which he made for the San Lorenzo Oratory in Palermo. On the basis of archival documents and previous analogical photogrammetric plotting, integrated with digital solutions and computer-based technologies, the study investigates and interprets the geometric-formal genesis of the examined works of art. Knowledge of the material composition of the stuccoes, along with the ability to accurately reproduce their shapes, give interesting possibilities to provide a complete reading of the works of art damaged by deterioration or theft.

  • Art, Science and History in a Globalized World: the Case of Italy-China

    • Authors: Salvatore Lorusso, Mauro Mantovani, Gangfeng Zhang, Vincenzo Barone
      Pages: 329 - 349
      Abstract: Art and science, over the centuries, though starting from different positions, have very often led to the same conclusions. History, on the other hand, establishes identities that derive from our past and allows for exchanges and unity between people of different nationalities, in both a commercial and scientific context, in a world without borders, in spite of obvious contradictions related to this globalized world. The case of Italy-China bears witness to this in a significant way.A case in point is represented by the scientific collaboration between the Alma Mater University of Bologna and Zhejiang University, as well as that between the Salesian Pontifical University of Rome and Fudan University in Shanghai, Zhejiang University and the Foreign Studies University of Beijing.In the first case, the ongoing research project “Historical anamnesis, preservation and valorization of the statues of the Longxing Buddhist Temple of Qingzhou (China)” is being carried out between the Department of Cultural Heritage Diagnostic Laboratory for Cultural Heritage of the University of Bologna and the Cultural Heritage Institute of Zhejiang University. In the second case, collaboration between the Salesian Pontifical University and the Chinese Universities, covers activities relating to the study of philosophy, pedagogy and Latin language and literature.The paper highlights the importance of drawing value of a cultural, conservative, social, identitary nature within the context of the holistic value of cultural heritage and respecting ethical aspects at a personal and interpersonal level, in particular, by offering young people the opportunity to enter the employment market and of which they are currently experiencing all the problematic fluctuations.
