My e-mail is pelosi@unitus.it and my telephone numbers are +390761 357673, mobile +393332877468. WORK EXPERIENCE From 1th of March 2005 I have been working as Researcher at the Department of Sciences for Cultural Heritage in the University of Tuscia - Viterbo (Italy). After the suppression of the department in November 2015, I am member of the Department of Economics, Engineering, Society and Business. Beginning from January 1991 until February 2005 I was employed as Technical Collaborator at the Faculty of Conservation of Cultural Heritage of Tuscia University owing to the winning of a public competition (D.R. nr 3495/90) to fill a post as chemist in the Diagnostics for Restoration Laboratory. My research work was aimed to the study of materials and techniques of cultural heritage and of the air pollution in relation to the artefacts. During my work as technical collaborator I carried out many didactic activities like: laboratory practical, tutor of degree theses, examinations. I was named as an expert on the following subjects: Product analysis; Applied chemistry; Chemistry technology and conservation of cellulose materials and of the textiles; Biology applied to Cultural Heritage; Chemistry of the environment; Chemistry deterioration and conservation technique of porous building materials and of the wall paintings; Chemistry for restoration; General physics. From January 1990 to January 1991 I worked as external collaborator in the Department of Forest Environment and Resources (DI.S.A.F.RI.) of Tuscia University of Viterbo.

The exhibition was carried out in Viterbo (Italy) from 17th December 2004 to 30th January 2005. On this occasion I carried out some analyses on three of the paintings restored by the Laboratory of Restoration of Viterbo Province, directed by Dr. Giorgio Capriotti. In particular, the investigated paintings were: The Madonna of Sorrows, St. Peter blessing and The penitent St. Peter, coming from Wignacourt College Museum of Rabat in Malta. The results of the analyses were reported in two panels during the exhibition and in the exhibition catalogue. In the month of March 2008 I participated to the Restoration Showroom in Ferrara with a stand representing the Faculty of Conservation of Cultural Heritage of Tuscia University.
