La presentazione nasce dalla pubblicazione degli atti del “simposio” che venne tenuto ad Ercolano tra il 23 ed il 27 settembre del 2013.
Nella presentazione della pubblicazione si può leggere:
“It was organized by the British School at Rome, as part of its partnership with the Packard Humanities Institute and the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Napoli e Pompei, known as the Herculaneum Conservation Project. This project was completed as part of MOSAIKON, a joint initiative of the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Foundation, the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics (ICCM) to improve the care and preservation of ancient mosaics in the greater Mediterranean. Major support for this publication was provided by a grant from the Getty Foundation. Local support was provided by the Herculaneum Centre Herculaneum”
Nella presentazione del progetto, riportata nel sito del Getty Conservazion Istitute, nella apposita pagina, possiamo leggere questa descrizione:
For this weeklong symposium, which used the archaeological site of Herculaneum as an “open classroom,” the MOSAIKON partners worked with the British School at Rome and the Herculaneum Conservation Project to bring together heritage professionals from the Mediterranean region, along with other international colleagues with expertise in shelters.
The participants represented a cross section of disciplines and a range of experiences in the conservation and management of sites with mosaics. Symposium participants presented case studies from their home countries, which tied the discussion to real sites and challenges. Issues discussed included deciding to shelter, condition assessments and environmental issues, designing and implementing shelters, and evaluation and maintenance.
The proceeding from the symposium are made available to further the discourse of protective shelters for archaeological sites and to offer heritage practitioners guiding principles when faced with sheltering decisions.
