``Villetta`` building

You are here:

Conservative restoration works on the facades of the “Villetta” building belonging to the retirement home for musicians – Fondazione Giuseppe Verdi

The state of preservation of the building was in apparent good condition, but showed some problems:

  • areas of torn plaster fallen due to the action of dilavation of the meteoric water
  • advanced detachment and fall of the graffiti plaster around the windows and balconies
  • loss of plaster graffiti decoration below the cover frame and the flat roofs
  • black crust phenomena on cement conglomerate materials
  • an advanced degradation of sandstone and decorative cement.

As far as it concerns the execution of the works, the realised interventions were divided in seven principal intervention areas: the decorative cements and their repositioning the sandy stone facades, the plaster, the plaster of painted cocciopesto, the balustrade of the passage that connects the principal building with the entrance of the Villetta.
