IPERION HSIntegrated Platform for the European Research Infrastructure

In November 2011, the Adoration of the Magi left the Uffizi Gallery and for many months the Opificio delle Pietre Dure carried out a campaign of scientific investigations, which made it possible to know the structure, materials and conservation problems of the large painting.

A video tells the story of this restoration unveiling features and secrets, and shows how scientific analyses carried out together with Iperion HS and E-RIHS partners can contribute to preserving the European heritage.

The scientific investigations were also carried out thanks to the collaboration with the INFN cultural heritage network, INFN-CHNet, which used XRF imaging for the identification of the preparatory drawing and characterization of the materials used.
