WHY A RESTORATION?
The last restoration of Sala delle Asse dates back to the Fifties. In 2006, due to a decline situation, a campaign to inspect the conservation stage of the paintings was carried out. It has evidenced the need for a quick intervention.
Therefore, a restoration project has been developed, with a threefold objective:
- investigate and eliminate the principles causing the paintings’ worsening;
- detect the repainting layers and the interventions which have occurred over the years, through investigation processes;
- evaluate the possibility to recover the legibility of the decoration, in regard to the conservation history of the work of art.
