CNR-ISTEC (Faenza) and CNR-ISMN (Palermo) organize a series of events on the wonderful Lime world. The main goal of this initiative is to renew the interest in the Lime both in the archaeological and architectonic conservation fields, due to a large increase of archaeometric studies on ancient mortars and plasters in recent years, and in building sector, by recovering our traditions, in particular historical materials and techniques in art, handicraft and building.

The events will be held in Sicily for its strong historical bond to the lime, for the presence of many research groups that study ancient lime mortars and/or develop innovative materials and for several small handicraft-companies that use lime according to old and typical artistic/building traditions.
