Abstract

After more than 3 centuries of deterioration and different structure modifications, back in the 1990’s Santa María Cathedral closed its doors to the public in order to begin an integral rehabilitation, which after 20 years of duration has reached great achievements in terms of Conservation of its Heritage. Within Santa María’s conservation works, it is of utmost importance the restoration of the stone covering its walls and, moving in with the researching and innovating line, the Fundación Catedral Santa María, in the company of the General Laboratory Service from the Diputación Foral de Álava, joined the European Project ‘Nano-Cathedral’ in 2015, an initiative providing funding from the European Union for the nano-materials researching and its application to heritage and high artistic importance buildings through stone consolidation and protection products. Coordinated from the University of Pisa and constituted of a Consortium including several entities from 6 different countries: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Norway and Spain, this Project summarizes basically in a three essential phase action application such as: development and study of new materials, application and validation at a laboratory scale on specific lithotypes and final application and validation in monuments from the European geography.Santa María Cathedral and its materials conservation process will begin yet in a few years, nevertheless this initiative entry is included within the intervention overall plan currently being prepared; in which is very important to find a stone affine product for the building, lengthening its conservation and slowing down its decay, being this the main objective pursued by the Foundation and Laboratory. The Project ‘Nano-Cathedral’ is currently in its final stage and, through its almost 3 years of duration, several improvements have already been produced, not only in developed materials and good achieved results for the different studied lithotypes (limestones, sandstones and marbles) but non-destructive or invasive test methodologies, complete characterizations of these lithotypes and mapping systems for decay detection in the different studied stones.
