Getty Publications is pleased to announce the publication of The Conservation and Presentation of Mosaics: At What Cost? Proceedings of the 12th Conference of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics, Sardinia, October 27–31, 2014 edited by Jeanne Marie Teutonico, Leslie Friedman, Aïcha Ben Abed, and Roberto Nardi.
In recent years, funding for the conservation of cultural heritage has become increasingly difficult to obtain, and this trend shows no sign of changing significantly in the foreseeable future. The twelfth triennial meeting of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics, held in Sardinia in October 2014, focused on the theme of cost, broadly considered, relating specifically to the preservation and presentation of the world’s mosaic heritage.
The volume will be of interest to conservators, site managers, and others responsible for conserving the mosaic heritage, especially in these challenging times.
Jeanne Marie Teutonico is associate director of programs at the Getty Conservation Institute and coeditor of Management Planning for Archaeological Sites (Getty Publications, 2002) and Managing Change: Sustainable Approaches to the Conservation of the Built Environment (Getty Publications, 2003). Leslie Friedman is a project specialist at the Getty Conservation Institute. Aïcha Ben Abed is former head of monuments and sites at the Institut National du Patrimoine of Tunisia, author of Tunisian Mosaics: Treasures from Roman Africa (Getty Publications, 2006), and editor of Stories in Stone: Conserving Mosaics of Roman Africa (Getty Publications, 2006).
