From 21st to 24th November 2023 the 10th SR2A – International Conference on Synchrotron Radiation and Neutrons in Art and Archaeology was held in Munich. Our laboratory presented two contributions: the first on the use of the XRF technique in the study of thicknesses of layers of materials of historical and artistic interest (authors: Prof. Anna Galli (Lambda), Dr. Jacopo Orsilli (Lambda), Giuliana Aquilanti (Elettra – Synchrotron Trieste and SILS);
This year, the Lambda Laboratory is participating in the Art’è Scienza initiative, organized by the Italian Association of Archaeometry (AIAr), with two events. The first event, scheduled for November 25 at the Pinacoteca Civica in Como, will focus on the diagnostic campaign conducted on the paintings of Manlio Rho. For more details and contacts, please refer to this link. On December 1 and 2, at the Civic Museums of the
The LAMBDA research activities are the main characters in the last episode of the web series “Crescere in Europa”, edited by the national newspaper “la Repubblica”. The series describes the impact of European founds on Italian young researchers. Prof. Anna Galli, Miriam Saleh, Simone Caglio and Jacopo Orsilli describe their experience and activities, and connect the work of LAMBDA in the vast world of Cultural Heritage

Miriam Saleh, a doctoral student at our labs, won the University of Milano-Bicocca’s “Ambassadors of Science” orientation project. This project aims to offer high school first two-year classes the opportunity to “adopt a female scientist,” that is, the shadowing of female doctoral students from the University Milano Bicocca in STEM fields, in a series of meetings where female scientists talk about their experience, research and career prospects. The meetings may
Our researches worked in “a night at the museum” location, analyzing the frescos in the rooms and the loggia of Castello Visconteo di Pavia. The news and the photos are on Bnews.
The reprint of the special issue “Application of Materials Science in the Study of Cultural Heritage” of the “Applied Sciences” journal, edited by Marco Martini and Anna Galli, is now online. All the information is available on the publisher’s page.
During the last AIAR congress (Padova, June 29th-July 1st), prof. Marco Martini was awarded the “Mario Milazzo” prize. The commission considered his great contributions to dating techniques and experimental methods in applied physics in the cultural heritage field, and his untiring dedication to interdisciplinarity.
The project “Luci e ombre al Castello Visconteo di Pavia: Avvio del recupero della corte interna (architettura, affreschi, lapidario) per una rinnovata fruizione”, proposed by the municipality of Pavia, won the announcement by Regione Lombardia “Piano Lombardia 2021-22: Bando per l’assegnazione di contributi per la valorizzazione del patrimonio pubblico lombardo a fini culturali: innovazione e sostenibilità”. The Lambda group will join the research with non invasive in situ spectroscopic analyses on fresco
The role of Cultural Heritage research on economical, social and environmental sustainability is nowadays a well-studied subject. The BiPAC Workshop ’22 presents the Cultural Heritage research as a consolidated ecosystem, in respect of the Law statements and the conservation and preservation needs. A complex group of heterogeneous entities that, cooperating, found a specific role in the society. Access: The seats are limited.
