DISCOVER THE RESTORATION PROCESS
Galleria is also the story of a great construction project. Little time and money, & great ambitions are dating back to 1865. It is very interesting to browse the numerous photos from the archive. One picture in particular stands out among the others, which is of the great multi-level mobile scaffolding in the center of the Octagon, which had been set up to construct Dome.
The restoration work, spanning from March 2014 to April 2015, foresees the presence of an average of 12 restorers and approximately 35,000 hours of work. Gasparoli s.r.l. performs the restoration of the surfaces (plaster, stone elements, stucco, decorative concrete), while all the work related to the scaffolding, temporary works and site installations is performed.
A deep understanding of past interventions, the willpower to preserve free access to the shopping areas, the need to ensure security and to optimize construction time limitations were all reasons which have encouraged reflection in search of a “creative” solution. The aim was ambitious: to carry out restoration works without any scaffolding.
