The Mora Sample Collection is an important archive of historic wall paintings samples and fragments collected from heritage sites from around the world. It is the legacy of two internationally renowned restorers, Paolo and Laura Mora, who collected these materials during technical missions and conservation projects undertaken on behalf of ICCROM between the 1960s and 1980s. The archive today comprises some 1400 wall painting samples from 36 countries.
