The aim of the present research is to investigate the execution techniques of San Vito wooden pulpit in the Museo Diocesano of Palermo and to provide helpful information to dating it in addition to technical, historical and artistic evaluations. In particular, this paper describes the application of analytical techniques (imaging diagnostics techniques, Scanning Electron Microscopy coupled with X-ray Energy Dispersive spectroscopy Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) to better understand the pulpit characteristics, both support and decoration, useful to plan and perform the correct restoration.
