The council has repaired the access space church diocese Saint Peter the Apostle Vallicello With an investment of 136,098 euros, with the aim of preserving the remains of the building’s shield, dating back to the sixteenth century, and turning them into a museum. Head of the Regional Service for Culture, Amelia Bian, signed the final report for the work which not only improved the space, but also included the restoration of armor remains and the installation of multi-coloured squares in the ceiling, all co-financed with European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
In order to preserve the remains of this coffered roof and make them visible for display and knowledge, possible alternative spaces suitable for their storage were studied. musicHe concluded that the only available space was the building’s lobby. For this purpose, it was proposed to demolish a small attached warehouse and the western closure of the atrium was made to provide sufficient space. In addition, the original entrance, which had three aisles dating back to the 16th century, was edited, and the facade and tower of the church were preserved. All this led to the adaptation of the hydrothermal conditions necessary to house the pieces to be displayed, as the space lacked ventilation and thermal insulation. At the same time, in order to preserve and display the salvaged covered objects, their restoration was necessary applying the least intervention standard, avoiding recombination.
The design of the antiques is based on the installation of brackets with their dogs with a simple fastening system that does not take center stage despite the high loading requirements and the creation of a display cabinet to store the large number of wood panel parts, but the various preserved types are shown. The finishes of the remainder of the space have sought to avoid unnecessary protrusion, applying materials from the original construction.
