APACHE Project was featured on the Italian News tv channel RaiNews24. The video showed goals and strategies developed to preserve cultural heritage: APACHE Project partner representative Gabriella Di Carlo from Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) showed activities and materials on which CNR is focusing for the success of APACHE.

Gabriella Di Carlo showed how a polymer is used to produce highly porous materials called aerogels. Moreover, to improve the appropriate modification of the properties of chitosan, additives of nanomaterials, including 2D systems, have been inserted. The goal was not to touch the work of art but to act on its surroundings and therefore to create around the artefact, a stable micro-environment that is safe for the work of art itself.
