Abstract
After more than 30 years since the first experiment we may say today that laser techniques are being widely employed by conservators and restorers as the best choice for the most important tasks: 1) diagnostics about the state of conservation; 2) restoration intervention in the crucial cleaning phase; 3) monitoring of the deterioration processes. Many important experiences have been carried out in Europe along these topics, with significant validation cases and sustainable technology transfer. In this paper the monitoring carried out by the EC Action COST G7 "Artworks Conservation by Laser" about the most advanced activities will be reported, showing how laser techniques in conservation of artworks are developing in Europe, providing a real change in the professional methods.
