Indoor and outdoor pollutant concentrations were measured simultaneously in the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence. SO2, HNO3, HONO and O3 in the gas phase and sulphate, nitrate and ammonium in particulate matter were measured. Indoor and outdoor values were similar. The indoor/outdoor ratios for all the pollutants, with the exception of HONO, were extremely variable ranging from 0.1 to 0.9. For HONO the indoor levels have been found to largely exceed those outdoor. The results show that indoor HONO production could result from heterogenous reactions on the walls and exposed surfaces which could include artworks giving rise to dry acid deposition of nitric acid.
