Museo Opificio Delle Pietre Dure - Review

The name quite literally means the ‘workshop of semi precious stones’ and is managed by the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage as one of the world’s premier art restoration facilities. The place maintains a large library database for that purpose, and conducts scientific research. These include restorations for Tapestries and carpets, bronzes and ancient weapons, wooden sculptures, wall painting, drawings and prints, stoneworks, pietre, dure mosaics, jewelry, easel paintings, terracotta and potteries, and textiles. Originally though, they just handled making semi precious jewellery. Today, at the small museum on site, visitors can find examples of pietre dure works, a large malachite baroque fireplace, and an exhibition explaining the technical processes developed through history for dure work.
