    The best experiments, to my knowledge, have been done by
    Fotoscientifica Re.co.rd, a small very specialized firm
    based in Parma (Emilia, Italy), in collaboration with teams
    of scholars and archive people.

    You may consult their web page:


    which has also an English version.

    On the other hand, I think that what Chiara Faraggiana di
    Sarzana writes, prefacing the publication of one such
    experiment, is very true: [my translation] Our experiment
    has confirmed once more the peculiarity of the material
    of EACH palimpsest folio. It is manifestly impossible to
    propose one technique universally valid, and applicable
    with similar results to every kind of manuscript.
