Determination of conditions to prevent weathering due to condensation, particle deposition and micro-organism growth on ancient stained glass windows with protective glazing.

The VIDRIO project started on the 1st of February 2002 and it will develop for 3 years a study focused on the improvement of methods and technological systems in order to control and reduce damage on stained glass. Most European  stained glass windows have no protection at all, being exposed to climatic influences, air pollution and biodeterioration. Although  protective glazing system is widely accepted,  many open questions remain and certain reservations do still exist in the mind of owners, curators and architects.
