The Lamentation of Christ by Andrea Mantegna
at the Pinacoteca di Brera
During the new set-up of the rooms at the Pinacoteca di Brera, on request of the new director Dr. James Bradburne, Arterìa examined, planned, and created the new protective case for Andrea Mantegna’s masterpiece, "The Lamentation of Christ".
The case was created by our Safe-Tech division and carried out through a non-invasive procedure on the historical frame, which was preserved in the Pinacoteca’s storage. The best preservative products available on the market today were used.
We carried “La Pietà” by Michelangelo to its new location in the old Spanish Hospital in the Courtyard of Arms at Castello Sforzesco.
The move was closely examined along with Castello Sforzesco management, the Cultural Heritage Authority of Milan, and the Superior Institute for Conservation and Restoration
- The packing was designed with the help of 3D technology and created with innovative techniques and materials.
