AUTHENTICO aims to
assess an innovative, shared and international protocol, for a set of non-invasive authentication techniques and procedures on movable metal artefacts, integrating different approaches: experienced evaluation of the artefacts on the historical and morphological sides, description of manufacturing techniques and analysis of material composition with state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies, commonly used for the study of modern technological materials and practically never used for the study of ancient materials;

develop portable instruments, integrating micro-topography performed with portable optical instruments, elemental analysis based on Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy and electronic-nose technology for the detection of selective molecular markers, for a simplified and non-invasive set of analyses and diagnostics to be carried out in situ, changing the perspective of authentication procedures for valuable objects, masterpieces, and large museum collections.
