Abstract
Despite the long period of time since the first proposal of a laser approach to restoration of artworks, this technique is still under debate. The various material composition determines quite different results according to the laser interaction parameters, and their selection and optimization is the base to design laser instrumentation developed for this field of application. The principles of restoration followed by the Italian school of conversation provided quite selective criteria for the development of techniques and laser devices. In the following a description of the activity carried out by our group will be presented and discussed according to the application of new laser instrumentation for cleaning techniques of stones and metals.
