Mariani frescoes in historic residences and castles

Mariani frescoes in historic residences and castles

Old residences, villas, palaces, castles: places full of charm and history that mark the beauty of our Italy and make the world fall in love with us. Architecture that requires extremely specialised and accurate restoration works to preserve its value.

These skills are not missing at the Mariani company. Its team of artists not only has the qualifications and skills to work on modern homes, but also on places of historical interest or old-style new buildings.

Here are two splendid projects by Mariani.

The first is Locanda del Castello in Roccasecca (province of Frosinone) and the second is Rocca di Montalfeo in Pavia. Locanda del Castello is an integral part of the medieval town of Castello di Roccasecca and is enveloped by an enchanting atmosphere full of artistic fascination. The splendid stonewalls of the old medieval homes remind us of far-off times. It is the birthplace of San Tommaso d’Aquino. Rocca di Montalfeo, an old manor dominating Val Staffora, also dates back to medieval times.

“We love these types of works,” explains Alberto Mariani, “because they involve very special studies and research and allow us to contend with evocative and stimulating spaces. We recreate scenes in keeping with the era, place and type of building. The challenge is to create frescoes in perfect harmony with the architecture, and with the same impact as the original frescoes”.

The Mariani team is adept at passing from modern and contemporary works (like those in the latest Arte Mariani collections) to works in historical buildings.

“These types of projects require very specific skills. For example, we reconstructed the battle scene of Malaspina for the Castello di Montalfeo. At Roccasecca we worked on the medieval-style rustications and on the underbeam decorations with coat of arms from the era, as well as on the aedicula of San Tommaso”.

This project called for artists with special painting skills and historical knowledge of the era, especially considering the dynamics with which certain works were executed in the past.

“In the past, there were no curtains or furniture, therefore interior decorations were used to furnish the homes. Paintings were for educational purposes, the images were a means of passing down the history of the events for people who did not know how to read”.

Let these marvellous locations “educate” and captivate us, which could be ideal places for a special weekend between history and art.
