The ambitious challenge of being able to recreate a work of art, with the same visual quality of the original using methods and recipes of processing of a typical workshop of the 1400s.
The fresco is made with only natural materials and exactly reproduces the working techniques of the Renaissance art workshops. The retouching takes place on every single piece as well as the gilding, for which only 24kt gold leaf / pure gold leaf is used. The lime is free of glues, salts or alkalis that could corrode the color and the seal for possible breakages is guaranteed by a net inserted inside it during the casting phase. The Certificate of Origin certifies the goodness and originality of the creation.
