Carlo Usai, together with his team of restorers, has been working in Italy and abroad for more than thirty years.
They mainly perform on monuments or pieces belonging to the public patrimony that have particular historical and artistic importance.
Their work is based on specific conservation criteria : marble and bronze sculptures are cleaned and restored so as not to cancel the natural superficial layers of patina. By doing so, the techniques they use -that have a slow working action and have been tested beforehand- may be manual and mechanical or chemical. These techniques are always the same, whether they regard small or monumental archeological pieces.
Besides restoration, they also carry out conservation projects, estimates and scientific inquiries aimed to the correct execution of the various phases of restoration.
They make casts of works of art as well as particular standing structures for objects of whatever weight and dimension showing statics damages.
Furthermore, they are involved in archeological excavation missions all over the world.
Ultimately, they write technical reports containing graphic and photographic documentation of the works of art before, during and after restoration.
