Abstract (in English)

These notes give a brief account of the principal sources of deterioration from environmental causes, with particular reference to the problems of "colour deterioration" which have played so important a part in the assessment of the compositional balance of the urban scene. With this question in mind a study was made of the various building materials (stone, mudbrick and renderings) which give Sardinia a part of its architectural and environmental colouring.
