I depositi e la camera anossica

Deposits

The Restoration Laboratories deal with the organization, consultation and enhancement of the deposits of the collections. To date, the deposits contain various types of works, with different materials, functions, eras and types.

Anoxic chamber

Through the anoxic disinfestation chamber, by subtracting oxygen in favor of nitrogen, furnishings can be disinfested as an ecological alternative to the classic systems such as, for example, the anti-woodworm. A disinfestation plan was created by drawing up precise lists, starting the cycle of all the wooden and textile furnishings and continuing with other types of works that require intervention.
