Abstract: Raffaele Armando Califano Mundo, painter and essayist (1857-1930), is one of the most interesting though little known characters in Italian art from the last century. Gifted with deep sensitivity and a vast technical and artistic knowledge, Mundo published various essays from 1910 on; other works of his were printed only after his death in Naples in 1930. Precious testimony passed on to us from the artist on the process of painting during the 19th and 20th centuries is of great interest to restorers who, thanks to this information, are thus able to analyze the various phases of execution of a painting and, as a result, to act upon such artworks in the best possible way and at just the right moment to help them battle time.
