Internet Forum "Internet forum on the study and the conservation of decorated ceramics in architecture." The purpose of this forum is to trigger a debate at the highest level between specialists in the different subject areas involved in the conservation and restoration of decorated architectural ceramics, in an attempt to cover the broadest possible geographic and cultural field. The forum is divided into five working modules, each of which will focus on one particular area of the general theme of decorated architectural ceramics. The five modules are: 1) The theory and practice of architectural intervention in the field of decorated ceramics, 2) The process of deterioration, pathalogies and analysis, 3) The history of architectural ceramics, training and dissemination, 4) Restoration techniques and processes, 5) Documentation and the siting of unusual architectural cases.
