Villa Bonaparte - Roma (Italy)

Restoration of facades and roof

Built in 1749 by Cardinal Gonzaga, Villa Bonaparte is a forerunner of the refinement and rigor of neoclassical architecture.

Subsequent to the restoration of the roof and the joinery, analyzes and cleaning of the facades and major consolidations of the walls, the production of the travertine feint and rehabilitation on some brickwork have highlighted a delicate play of shadow and light on the facades.
The restoration of the Villa Bonaparte was therefore instrumental in reviving the softness of the facade as well as its relationship with the garden.
