Mosaics conservation is a practice as old as mosaic-making itself. We can see today ancient mosaics showing patches made as a maintenance practice when the floors were still in use. We are also aware that restoration was an art widely used in past centuries by antiquarians. We might also refer to brilliant examples of restorations implemented during the first decades of the 20th century.
