Our services

REA working group operate from several years on conservation and protection of wall frescoes, sculptures - both made by stone or plaster, historical facades, decorations, wooden artcrafts as old gates, church furnitures etc.

First approach to the artcraft involve a preliminary study, historical and on the decay cause, followed by an analysis on previous restoration work made on the same object.

Diagnostics allows to understand reasons which led to decay and to avoid to have the same troubles in the future. Moreover it allows to find the right way to operate, since there are no two similar work in restoration, but each work is unique and complex. For this reason, before each work we test several products and we analize, sometimes with chemical and phisical sampling, the results to be sure we are operating in the right way.

At the end of the work we provide photographical documentation, both on paper and on digital support. We are everytime proud to cooperate in letting on the work done, organizing small meeting and showing to interested persons with media support everything. This can be often useful to guarantee a serious work and helps in fund rising too.
