Scientific method and craftsmanship sensitivity

Studio Fenice’s work in the field of restoration is their greatest source of prestige. Admirable is the depth with which they analyse the issues posed by the deterioration of materials and structures in stained glass windows, fragile intermediaries of lighting in architecture. Valeria Bertuzzi and Americo Corallini’s work is characterized by two apparently colliding aspects: a rigorous approach to working practices and the scientific analysis of materials and techniques is paired with their appreciation for “tactile values”, essentially artisanal features resulting from the work of skilled eyes and hands, which give each piece a sense of time. Having absorbed the ways and traditions of centuries of glassmaking techniques, Studio Fenice favours a traditional style for its original stained glass, thus becoming bearers of the same warmth and atmosphere which ancient stained glass windows were able to convey.
