Impact of pollution, climate and microclimate changes

Modelling and experimental activities for the implementation of tools (damage functions, vulnerability indicators, risk maps) for the protection of movable/immovable Cultural Heritage, indoors and outdoors.

Development of non-invasive methodologies and technologies for diagnosis and assessment of anthropic impact (e.g. energy consumption, waste, mobility, urbanization) on movable and immovable cultural heritage.

Mineralogic-petrographical characterization and damage evaluation of heritage materials exposed to pollution, microclimate and climate change.

Aerobiology: vegetational variation of the airborne biological component in relation to environmental factors and climate changes.
