Restoration of the 1921 Art Deco bronze Berthe Grosso Bonnin Memorial, by the sculptor Eugenio Baroni, has been completed.
Lucia Reati of Conservazione e restauro opere d’arte, Genoa, Italy, carried out this work. The surface was cleaned of dirt and pollutants, small fractures in the bronze were repaired, and the sculpture received a new patina and protective finish. She also cleaned and restored the surrounding landscape. You can see photos of the work and learn more about this important sculpture at staglieno.com/eugenio-baroni-1880-1935/.
Work has begun on the Fletcher/Strickland memorial by Luigi Brizzolara
