Castello di Masino (Caravino, Torino)

12 March 2020

The spectacular painting collection in the Savoia’s Sitting-Room has been the object of a photography campaign and a non-invasive diagnostic analysis, with the aim of verifying the state of conservation of the canvases. This examination of the paintings has been carried out in anticipation of the creation of a site of study and restoration of the paintings and frescoes, as foreseen in 2020.

A photography set and mobile laboratory have been set-up for the occasion, in order to scan images of the paintings in situ using scattered visible light, oblique visible light, and infrared reflection techniques as well as fluorescent UV light.
