Pietro is here. On the Gianicolo hill, the Church of San Pietro in Montorio conceals the small and, fundamental for the history of architecture, the Bramante temple. This is a place of witness, a place that preserves memories, the passage and the hand of important architects and artists of Italian history. G. L. Bernini, Giorgio Vasari, Sebastiano Del Piombo, Baldassarre Peruzzi have made this church an iconic stage of the Renaissance. An artistic heritage of fundamental importance that requires a deep restoration after a long period of neglect.
The restoration intervention proposed a chromatic uniformity for the entire façade, restoring a hypothetical “stone” reading of the entire structure, in continuity with the travertine basement. The resulting image differs from both the original image and the last nineteenth-century remake, because both were based on a two-color pattern that distinguished ashlars and cornices from the bottom, attributing a figurative "structural" value to architectural scores.
The intervention, that regards the complete building, has necessitated a consolidation of the main structure: foundation, vaults, walls and floors. The intervention regards the renovation of the apartments too, in accord with the space and language of the elegant roman building, using the typical materials of the roman tradition.
The chapel of Nostra Signora di Guadalupe, the most exuberant of the chapels of the Church of Santa Maria Degli Angeli at La Gancia in Palermo, houses the tomb of Don Juan Lopez de Cisneros, the inquisitor killed in the secrets of the Steri "by the heretic" frà Diego la Matina in 1657, whose story was told by Sciascia in his booklet "Death of the Inquisitor".
The intervention originally had to foresee a banal internal redistribution of the spaces, restoring the main halls of the building, through the removal of false partitions. In the course of execution, however, from the removal of the chamber to reeds, a chestnut coffered ceiling and a pictorial top frieze emerged, both in a strong state of deterioration and severely damaged by incongruous maintenance interventions
The completed works concern the restoration of the external facades of the building that houses the Spanish Consulate in Rome. The building appears to have been rebuilt in the 1930s on a first architectural structure that seems to belong to Ferdinando Fuga, of which however every trace has been destroyed.
The work concerns an overall intervention on the entire building, neglected for a long time. The works are in progress and involve the renovation of the internal condominium spaces, giving new light to corridors and doorways; following the stratigraphic analyzes on the masonry surfaces, we will proceed with the remaking of all the external plasters of the main facades and of the four internal cloisters, removing the pictorial and plaster layers of the walls, bringing the building back to its original appearance according to the Borrominiana technique of "Brodata glue"; finally, the cover is being rebuilt, with a careful review of all drainage and water disposal systems.
