Abstract

The archaeological site of Castellammare di Stabia is a large area facing the Gulf of Naples, with many roman buildings. The area is also characterized by several typologies of shelters built in different years, with different materials and technologies. The microclimatic campaign had the aim to support the design of more efficient shelters to protect the roman mural paintings. The microclimate of some halls was controlled by recording air temperature, surface temperatures, (mural paintings and roof-shelters), relative humidity, wind speed. Internal and external microclimate have been compared, the influence of the external climate on the internal one has been highlighted. By the microclimatic monitoring of different areas covered with different type of shelters, the comparison of the state of conservation of the mural paintings related with the different typology of shelters has been possible. By the use of a simulation program the microclimatic data were used to design new shelters. © 2006 Taylor & Francis Group.
