RESTORATION OF STONE MATERIALS
Statues, architraves, capitals, cornices: working with stone means coming into physical contact with monumental work, intervening on its most characteristic elements, both safeguard the monument and to recover its original expressive power.
RESTORATION OF DECORATED SURFACES
Attention to detail is essential, even on a large scale: we intervene on external and internal decorations, identifying the types of decay and restoring colors and surfaces to their former glory, respecting the original colors and materials.
RESTORATION OF ANCIENT PLASTERS
The restoration of plasters is a fundamental part of our work, both because it allows us to restore the original beauty of large architectural and monumental surfaces, and because it allows a better preservation of the work itself over time. Sansone uses innovative techniques combined with the craftsmanship of its restorers for these restorations.
Refurbishing means putting hands on the “body” of the monument or building itself. Our interventions see different degrees of complexity, from simple structural consolidation to reconstruction of missing parts, systems and supporting structures. We respect the original design and work in close collaboration with the management and, where necessary, with the Superintendence.
After the body, the “skin” of the monument needs to be restored, consolidated, and unified in order to bring about a wholeness to the restoration work. Both in the case of ancient and modern monuments, the painting takes into account the style and age of the monument and the environment without distorting its beauty.
RECOVERY OF ROOFS AND COVERINGS
Interventions of essential importance are those on roofs and roofing, whose degradation often jeopardizes the preservation of the entire building. We therefore proceed with operations of insulation, waterproofing, consolidation, and coverage. When possible we use the original materials.
DECORATIONS AND PAINTINGS
The skill of Sansone’s restorers is revealed not only in restoration work, but also in the creation of new pictorial decorations: we create different types of decorations, choosing the materials and methods that allow for perfect harmony with the space.
ARTISTIC, DECORATED AND VENETIAN FLOORS
Often what we walk on is a real work of art. Sansone realizes floors in different ancient and modern styles made with a variety of techniques and materials (from stone to marble, from grit to mosaic).
DECORATIVE PLASTERS AND STUCCOES
Heirs of a long tradition of craftsmanship, we are able to create stucco decorations and decorative plaster, elements that are anything but secondary to create elegant environments with attention to detail, worthy of our most demanding customers.
