Activities of EMASST for the restoration of the Crypt of Sant’Agnese in Agone in Rome.
EMASST is involved in the preliminary activity of scientifical research, aimed to evaluate the state of preservation of the Crypt of Sant’Agnese in Agone in Rome.
The Crypt of Sant’Agnese in Agone is placed at Piazza Navona, one of the main urban spaces in the historic centre of the city and the crypt is the site where the Early Christian Saint Agnes was martyred in the ancient Stadium of Domitian. In fact the Crypt was built on the rests of Stadium of Domitian.
The crypt is currently closed to the tourists since, after its last renovation in the 1893, it was undergone to natural catastrophic events (floods of Tiber river, intense rains, etc…) that ruined the ancient frescoes present on the walls and ceiling of the Crypt.

Great success for the 19th International Symposium of MESAEP !!
Particiation of EMASST at the congress
19th International Symposium on Environmental Pollution and its Impact on Life in the Mediterranean Region
October 4 to 6, 2017
In this frame, EMASST gave its contribution both advertising the event and participating with two oral presentations:
"State of art on Environmental health and well-
"Aerospace research as a seed of entrepreneurship for social welfare".
The world of the material surfaces is playing a prominent role in the scientific and industrial fields thanks to the nanotechnology and nanomaterials, in fact they are already revolutionizing our lives.
It is necessary to deepen the knowledge of surface interface and adhesive properties of these materials because their surface/volume ratio is vastly greater than that of conventional materials. As a result, at this time the researchers can develop innovative properties such as functional and extremes that have practical implications in daily life.
For example in the field of biomedical implants, modifying surfaces at the nanoscale, better biological compatibility and an integration of the implant in the organic tissue is obtained than the actual implants. In aviation, modifying the properties of the surface wings at the nanometer level can overcome the problem of the ice nucleation and growth, increasing the safety of the flights.
In everyday life, the new research discoveries on material surfaces begin to be evident as the surfaces self-
At the 2nd European Symposium on Surface Science partecipated researchers from european universities, research centers and industries such as: Airbus (Germany), Aksaray University of Technology (Turkey), Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (Germany), Warsow University of Technology (Polond), PCB "ARGO" (Israele), University of York (UK), University of Crete (Greece), CIRA (Italia), JRC-
At the end of the Symposium, the Steering Committee handed the EMASST AWARD on Surface Science for the best scientific work in terms of originality and industrial application to Dr Nadja Felde, young researcher of the Fraunhofer IOF. Her work entitled "Advanced Roughness Analysis of Functional Nanostructures for Optical Applications" describes a new method and analysis procedure to determine rapidly surface roughness at micro and nanoscale of functional surfaces which have new and advanced properties (self-
