It is commonly called "Milano Gate", in Pavia, and it consists of two identical buildings, located on both sides of the road that connects the city to Milan, near the old walls. They are masonry buildings covered in exposed stone with, in the centre, a pedestrian passage, surmounted both at the entrance and at the exit by a stone shelf with the city coat of arms.
On the top of each toll booth there is a stone sculpture, depicting one of the two rivers of Pavia, the Po and the Ticino rivers, personified in a figure of a man in a supine position.

Saint Michael back to the original color
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unfortunately is no longer active today.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

A magical and wonderful place like Villa Litta in Lainate, suburbs of Milan, its gardens and its nymphaeum, requires constant attention and maintenance. Not only because it is an ancient place, with five hundred years of history, but also because the conditions of high humidity, due to the presence of water everywhere, damage works of art and systems that feed them in a very short time.

Pavia City council
The ancient Mezzabarba palace, a noble eighteenth-century palace, has been the seat of the Municipality of Pavia 
since the unification of Italy, 1861

Built in XVIII century, in the recent years the building had gradually lost its beauty and delicacy due to the 
continuous and, often inopportune, maintenance interventions. Who could have imagined that, under the layers 
of acrylic color and paint, the soft and delicate late Baroque colors that had made this building a jewel in 
the city of Pavia could still be found?

One of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Italy, the Basilica of San Michele Maggiore, in Pavia, is a masterpiece.

Imperial church built in the first decades of the 12th century on a pre-existing Longobard one, the Basilica was the seat of the coronations of the emperors of the Italian Kingdom, in the period in which Pavia was its capital and here, among others, Emperor Frederick Barbarossa was crowned in 1155.

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.

Part of a long restoration, which began twenty years ago and is still in progress,

North of Milan, the city of Desio has been famous cause one of his citizens has been on the past a Pope in Vatican, with the name of Pio XI. To celebrate this event, a bronze statue has been placed on the main square of the city at the end of XIX century.
