L’analisi Stratigrafica dello Strumento Antico: un Approccio Microtomografico

Abstract



The coating system of bowed string instruments is often composed of several
organic (e.g. siccative oils, resins) and inorganic (e.g. pigments, fillers)
materials, variously mixed and/or overlaid. In two recent scientific studies
performed by the Arvedi Laboratory of Non-Invasive Diagnostics, six large
fragments removed from musical instruments during past restorations and
attributed to important violin makers have been considered for an innovative
non-invasive insight into their stratigraphies through Synchrotron Radiation
micro-Computed Tomography.
