Code of Ethics

above all we respect the cultural integrity, the history and the artistry of the object.

preventive conservation is the first step to prevent further degradation. interventive treatment is carried out only when necessary. treatments are based both on reversibility and minimal interference.

all materials and techniques used comply with international standards of quality and purity for the conservation of cultural heritage. any intervention is documented and photographed, its register is stored in digital form and in hard copy. for security purposes, all records are stored permanently in two separated locations.
