The art of restoration

"Restoration is the methodological moment of recognition of the "work of art" in its physical consistency and in its double aesthetic and historical polarity, with a view to its transmission into the future".

First thing to do? Recognize the work of art as a work of art. In the absence of this acknowledgement, restoration is to be understood as any intervention with the purpose of restoring its full functionality. Product of human activity that manifests itself in a double instance: Aesthetic instinct, which derives from its artistic nature ;Historical instinct, which qualifies it as a human product born in a certain time and place.
