Conserving Frescos: Detrimental Change Due to Moisture

Moisture has been one of the leading causes of deterioration for fresco wall paintings, causing them to fall apart to the point where their meaning becomes lost. Many frescos contain highly symbolic moral or social messages that reflect the attitudes and perspectives of the time of their creation, and thus contribute to art, history, sociology, and teaching. The hope for these remarkable works of art is to reduce the need for large-scale interventions and ensure sustainable conservation solutions so they can remain in the context of their building or site, preserving the messages and artistic and technical merit of the heritage that created it.
