The National Museum of Oman

Muscat, March 2016 – Last month I could spend three weeks in the Sultanate of Oman working as a conservator for the National Museum of Oman in Muscat.
Me and other three Italian colleagues have been part of a mission lead by the Italian company Regoli & Radiciotti for the conservation and preservation of Western and Islamic volumes, printed books (XIX-XX cent.) and manuscripts (XVII cent.), belonging to the Museum collection.
