The aim of this work has been to study the microclimate conditions of the environment of two big sculptures by Pietro Consagra: Ferro bifrontale arancione and Plastico in ferro realized in 1977 for the exhibition Pietro Consagra Iron Sculptures that took place in Charleston, South Carolina, in order to prevent their deterioration. From 2005, in fact, these sculptures were exposed in two basement rooms of Tuscia University. But the environment didn’t appear suitable for these iron sculptures because the relative humidity and above all its variations were too high. So, as preventive conservation, the microclimate was monitored for one year and the data were supplied to the competent Superintendence that provided to transfer the sculptures in a more suitable environment avoiding a restoration intervention.
