The small parish church of Borgo San Felice, a hamlet perched on the top of a hill among Chianti hills, in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga, has an ancient history, and a long period of abandonment in recent history.

How many years have we been working in San Michele Maggiore in Pavia,  one of the oldest and richest 
basilicas in Northern Italy?
It was in the 2001 when we took part in the restoration of the transept and the recovery of a fresco 
from the Visconti era (XV Century). 
At the time, REA did not yet exist, but we worked as employees in another company in the area,which 
unfortunately is no longer active today.

In twenty years we have been on many scaffoldings, but there is hardly a work comparable to the

After a long restoration work, which lasted almost a year, the "Cortile delle Piogge" comes back to life, 
in the "Nymphaeum" of Villa Litta in Lainate.

This place is an "unicum" in Italy, a "place of delights" from the sixteenth century where, in an artificial 
environment of caves and small underground channels, between frescoes and mosaics, small water games and 
jokes amazed and bathed visitors.

The restoration work on the vault of the Church of San Giacomo in Pizzale, Not far from Pavia, has been concluded.

The works, carried out to restore the vaults decorated with frescoes and stucco works by the painter Cesare Secchi to the ancient splendor, involved a general cleaning of all the surfaces and the recovery of some faux marble decorations which were actually hidden. The stuccoes have been consolidated in depth, taken up in the incomplete and pictorially integrated parts.

From the first days of August we are working on the historical Collegio Borromeo, located in the center of Pavia, near the Ticino River. Founded in 1561 by San Carlo Borromeo, this building is one of the most impressive buildings of Mannerist period in Lombardy, designed by Pellegrino Tibaldi, described by Vasari "Palace of Wisdom" and quoted from Manzoni's "Promessi Sposi." 

The most interesting room is, without doubt, the hall of the frescoes, painted in 1603, with episodes from the life of St. Charles Borromeo.

Back to old times
We completed the restoration work in the Church of SS. Sacramento to Garlasco, next to Pavia, which began in the fall of last year. For the occasion, a beautiful evening of celebration with the Chorus of Garlasco, punctuated by moments of the history of the Church, which dates back to the first half of the seventeenth century.
