Notes about the restoration project
This restoration project involved two drawings, which are part of a private collection. The two drawings are attributed to Giovanni Fattori and are executed in graphite; the first on a poor quality paper, such as straw paper, the second on tracing paper.
The works were in a very bad state of conservation: tears, gaps, folds, the presence of previous patches. All damage due to bad handling and incorrect storage.
The intervention focused on the consolidation and compensation of the paper support as well as on the smoothening and elimination of creases, with the consequent result of returning a better reading of the drawings.
This project has been carried out for Coo.Be.C., Cooperativa di Beni Culturali , Spoleto.
