Intervention of conservationist restoration of a double sided processional standard from the VIII century of italian manufacture.

On the cream side there is the Madonna of the Rosary with the Child Jesus, while on the other side you can see a scene of Eucharistic Adoration.

The work was in a good state of preservation, however the deformation of the background fabrics and the precariousness of the satin in the painted areas have pushed towards a conservative restoration campaign.

Restoration phases:

  • Division of the two sides
  • Micro suction at controlled speed
  • Cleaning
  • Vaporization
  • Consolidation
  • Pictorial retouching
  • Reassembly


Disassembly of the banner from the package and division of the two sides


Suction at controlled speed and elimination of particle deposit on front and back of all tissues by means of protective filter nets.


Cleaning with sponges and cotton balls with neutral Ph solution of the base fabrics, embroidery, fringes and tassels


Consolidation of the base fabric and the metallic yarns by means of technical stitches, and application of protective micro-net with wide cells in the most degraded areas.
