Authentication Methodologies for Metal Artifacts based on Material Composition and Manufacturing Tec
AUTHENTICODE focuses on the establishment of scientifically and technically- based international standards in the application field of authentication of movable cultural items. The strategic objective of the research is the innovative integration of non-invasive techniques for objective authentication of metal artifacts (utilitarian and ornamental), based on material composition &amp;amp;amp;amp; description of manufacturing techniques. This is achieved by exploiting the most advanced analytically techniques and by developing &amp;amp;amp;amp; validating portable instrumentation based on selective composition markers&amp;amp;amp;#39; detection and characterization of technological fingerprints.
