The recent restoration works of Santo Stefano Church Fac¸ade (XV century) in Venice have shown traces variously saved of different kind of surface finishes. These finishes were found on the brick’s surface both in the masonry and in the decorative elements. Different brick’s surface and decorative tile samples were investigated using several techniques: optical microscopy, scanning electronmicroscopy, thermal analysis, infrared spectroscopy and reflectance Fourier transform infrared microspectroscopy. The evaluation of the reached results was used to understand the decorative techniques and to recognize the material employed.
