Mammarella, our Italian renovation company and master builders, are continuing to do an amazing job.
Nearly all the vital ‘propping’ has been completed.
The massive crane has been put in place and the garden side scaffolding will be erected in the next days, so the main building works can really gather pace.
All original doors and door-frames are being numbered and catalogued prior to removal and storage. They will be restored by local craftsmen before being re-hung. Likewise the ‘Art Nouveau’ stained glass windows and doors from the atrium are being carefully removed and painstakingly restored, as will be the enormous stained glass central skylight (pictured below).
