Abstract

The historical earthquake known as “Terremoto delle Calabrie” in 1783 heavily damaged the Cultural Heritage of Southern Italy. Many buildings were recovered and revalued in the subsequent reconstruction, among which the Saint Maria Assunta church. It is rich in stuccoes and false marble decorations, which have never been restored after that reconstruction. The results of the diagnostic campaign carried out throughout OM, FT-IR, EPMA-EDS, provided important information on the ancient executive techniques in Southern Italy useful in the project of conservative restoration of the church.
