Description on this project

Empress Maria Theresa of Austria commissioned the construction of the estate between 1777 and 1780. Design and execution of necessary structural works have granted a significant seismic improvement of the whole building, thanks to the special strengthening of the walls implemented and to the consolidation/stiffening of slabs. All original surfaces have been respected, all wooden slabs have been maintained. Almost one hundred workers and restorers have been involved in the
restoration of the central body of more than 10,000㎡, with over 40 rooms, 2,000㎡ of parquet, 3,000㎡ of roofs, and 800㎡ of stone surfaces.
