|Abstract: ||The identification of microorganisms involved in biodeterioration/biodegradation process is determinant
to understand their effects on cultural assets, and furthermore, it is a crucial step to define an efficient
strategy to protect monuments and artworks from microbiological recolonisation, in order to promote
The renaissance mural paintings from the garden of the Inquisition Palace in Évora, classified by
UNESCO as World Heritage, were analysed in order to find the microbial population involved in the
biodeterioration process, and, to assist and develop an efficient intervention, by biocides application to
control the propagation of microbial communities responsible for biodegradation.
The biocides tested revealed good inhibition results against the microbial communities isolated from
the paintings, whose action spectrum was noticeably enlarged when the application was carried out combining
two different commercial biocides.
In vitro antifungal assays performed with new natural biocompounds revealed efficient inhibition
capacity, suggesting the potential of these compounds to be used as a great and safe alternative to the
chemical compounds usually used on cultural assets microbial treatments|
