Contenuto: The Temple of Mut, known as “B-300”, relevant component of the much vaster site of Jebel Barkal included in the World Heritage List, in 2003, is one of the Sudanese monuments that preserve an important pictorial cycle of great historical and artistic importance. In the framework of a cooperation agreement between the Istituto Centrale per il Restauro (ICR) and the National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums (NCAM) has been developed an integrated conservation project based on ICR methodological criteria: aimed not only at restoration of the decorated surfaces, but providing also for structural strengthening of the monument and preventive conservation works.
