Abstract

This chapter first highlights the necessity of sustainable management and protection of cultural heritage (CH). This necessity is stated by pointing out the social and economic value of our cultural heritage, presenting the very challenging set of risk factors, and by briefly summarizing the recommendations of high-level policy makers. A possible answer to these necessities is the design and the implementation of a systematic approach, based on the integration of different concepts ranging from the sensing, to the information and communications technology (ICT) tools, to the materials design and implementation. In this framework, the present book describes the novel and state-of-the-art technologies in the field of diagnosis and monitoring and in ICT for the improved fruition of cultural heritages.
