Abstract:
Plaster and stone samples coming from the 19 th century Palazzo Fragapane in Grammichele (CT) were collected and characterized by using several microanalytical techniques such as X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), Fourier Transformed Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR). The Analytical investigations were addressed to investigate the microstructure and the composition of the different samples and to define the type and the level of the weathering in order to design the best procedures for the maintenance and conservation of the historical building.
