Restoration

 

Inspired by a conservational approach, our work is distinguished by the high professionalism of the techniques used and the detailed clarity with which they are documented. Instruments that come to our laboratory to be restored are subject, before any intervention, to an early stage of photographic documentation and careful research work, in order to identify the correct methods of intervention and techniques to be used. During restoration, our goal is to preserve original parts of the instrument without losing any of the information they communicate to us about its author, its style and its construction techniques.

The possibility of re-use of the instrument, especially in the case of instruments of a certain historical importance, is carefully considered and, where possible pursued, where we try not to distort the historical material with too invasive interventions. Each phase of the restoration is well documented and an accurate final report is provided, accompanied by photographic material, which gives a complete and clear idea of the intervention performed, the techniques used and objectives.

Some examples of these reports are available to download in this section.
