SACRED AND PROFANE FURNISHINGS
Volterra’s history is long and storied. Founded as a powerful Etruscan settlement before becoming a flourishing Roman town, Volterra became an important diocese in the twelfth century and a "principality of the Holy Roman Empire and Palatine County in Tuscany", with its very own mint and ample political autonomy.
Centuries of history have left some remarkable artistic and architectural testimonies in this city, including the Episcopal Curia, housed inside an extremely ancient convent.
The restructuring and renovation of the environments of the Curia of Volterra was a challenge
that only our extensive know-how in this sector could have tackled.
Indeed, we had to respect the aura of transcendence that emanated from its rooms without altering the building’s intrinsic spirit. This set in motion all our skills in a project with a complex development.
The refurbishment of the interiors and the décor was aimed first and foremost at preserving the rigour and simplicity of the building, with a careful eye to tradition.
The choice of materials was therefore fundamental: all our interventions had to harmonise with the environment and the areas still in good condition.
