Project ID: 22453

Abstract

This is the final report of the FING-ART-PRINT project. The project aimed to develop a system that offers advanced protection for works of art in terms of illicit trafficking and damaging during transportation and exhibition.

The document briefly mentions well and less known cases of illicit trafficking of artworks to outline the significance of the problem and then describes the basic principles on which FING-ART-PRINT relied on developing its system.

It later discusses the work performed under individual work packages, the results obtained and possible applications, along with the possible positive impact in the worldwide efforts against artworks trafficking and damaging.
