The preservation of historical art treasures requires not only restorers, but also research and the resulting high-tech solutions. This is especially true for world-famous works of art such as »The Last Supper« by Leonardo da Vinci, which pose additional challenges to museums due to their age. In this project, our researchers are providing support with terahertz technology.
On the initiative of Dr. Michela Palazzo, director of the Museo del Cenacolo Vinciano in Milan, and Dr. Fabio Aramini of the Instituto Superiore per la Conservazione ed il Restauro in Rome, as well as the commitment of Dr. Kaori Fukanaga of the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, the Last Supper of Leonardo Da Vinci could be studied by means of millimeter and terahertz wave. Also on board: The experts of the working group around Dr. Fabian Friederich.
