Abstract

The environmental conditions of the museum exhibition facilities and storage areas have been shown to be the most crucial factor concerning the preservation of collections and artifacts. The paper improves the system previously implemented to monitor environmental parameters in the museum. The improvement concerns with the adding of measurement procedure to evaluate the pollution by fungal spores. The research shows that the environmental parameters imposed by the Italian standard UNI 10829 may be not effective in inhibiting fungal spore growth on the paintings at the National Gallery of Cosenza, Palazzo Arnone.
