Question: In your opinion what is the right method for a restoration work?
- The conservative one, keeping everything in the same state in which it currently is?
In case one needs to build missing pieces, will it be fundamental to highlight the differences of the new work from the original one?
Will it be necessary to realise a workpiece similar to the original, maybe using similar materials too?
