ESTIA Ltd. is a company founded in 1990 by a group of professionals who, on the company’s creation, already shared a wealth of experience in the restoration of works of cultural heritage.
The current members, former founders of the company, are two restorers who graduated from schools of Higher Education of the Ministry of National Heritage and Culture.
The restorers of the company, in over thirty years of experience, have worked mainly in the sectors of the fresco, stone, mosaic, stucco, terracotta and paintings on canvas and board.
The restoration activities are carried out by skilled technicians, each one within his own field of specialization, coordinated by restorers trained at the Opificio delle Pietre Dure of Florence (an educational institution which is a global leader in the field of art restoration) and who form part of the company’s organization. The company has developed specialist experience in the recovery of decorative structures in some buildings damaged by earthquakes. Its restorers have long been engaged in the restorations that followed the earthquakes of Valnerina (1979-1985), south-eastern Sicily (1990), Umbria and Marche (1997).
