Restoration of OLIVETTI store

Restoration of OLIVETTI store

Restoration and conservation of the store’s interior surfaces.

The lustrous stucco walls and smooth plaster of the prestigious Olivetti showroom in Piazza San Marco, Venice, designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa in 1957, had been repeatedly retouched. Due to the lack of proper maintenance over a long period the surfaces were covered with a yellowish patina. This restoration work was carried out with the collaboration of Venice Municipal Superintendence for Architectural Heritage who’s directive was to restore the surfaces to their original state.
