The Diagnostics and preservation cleaning methods conference organised by IBIX and Melloncelli on the occasion of the Ferrara Restoration Fair was a great success.

Particular thanks goes to the speakers: Mr Darrio Benedetti, Prof. Vasco Fassina, Kelly Ciociola, Mrs Francesca Brancaccio, Barbara Gelli, Dr Paola Conti and Luigia Gambino and Dr Rossana Gabrielli, who, with their top shelf speeches, attracted a participating and numerous audience

The event, which was split up in two parts, morning and afternoon, took up the entire day demonstrating innovative surface dehumidification methods and the related case studies. The afternoon session, on the other hand, illustrated the IBIX aero-cleaning technology. This technique is based on an innovative approach which falls perfectly in line with the most recent regulatory trends as was explained by Prof. Vasco Fassina, chairman of the CEN European Committee TC 346 Conservation of cultural heritage. The conference provided an opportunity to demonstrate important case histories all over the world where the IBIX technology has been used successfully, starting from important works in the USA illustrated by restorer Kelly Ciociola.
