Stucco and plaster cast

Stucco is a highly malleable material adapted for large-sized ornament projects. Being a versatile matter, stucco has been widely used for elaborate installations and relief decorations, including mouldings, cornices, capitals, strips and pilasters, pedestals, altars.
Long considered as a less refined decoration as compared to fresco painting and stone, stucco works have become heavily impaired by gross remaking, alteration and repainting.
An analysis of the constitutive materials coupled with the stratigraphic survey of surfaces makes it possible to restore even complex stucco decorations and rehabilitate their correct function in a monumental setting and their original contribution to the overall concept of the architectural space.
