Theory of Restoration

20,00 17,00

Author of the first and still best known “Teoria del restauro”, Cesare Brandi lent intellectual dignity to restoration work, which until that time had been an empirical, artisan-type activity.
Given that the protection and restoration of works of art is a moral obligation for an member of civilised society and so its highest level must be recognized, restoration then becomes “criticism in action”. It is even more important because it is practised directly on the work of art, whose material integrity must be respected, as that is the only way to protect the artistic values of figurative objects that are inseparably linked to the materials of which they are made.
