Fake marbles decoration

Among the most common interventions decoration there are the reconstructions of fake marbles, most often on a plinth or on a pilaster, in private homes or in churches. 

In this case we brought the experience of Cava Manara restoration works, where many fake marbles were completely lost beacause of excessive repainting. At the request of the local community and considering in most parts of the faux marble were in good condition, the Superintendent has agreed to integrate the missing decorations. 

Taking as inspiration the orignal marbles and developing them with researches the most common marbles in construction in Lombardy, we painted a series of red and white marbles of Candoglia on pilasters and plinths, using lime colors. This intervention was part of the overall restoration of the Church vaults, carried on between 2008 and 2010.
