20 years of Unisve

Unisve was born in 2001 with the purpose of keeping alive the venetian building techniques in order to restore the city of Venice. After 20 years our goal is the same but stronger: our desire is to take part in Venice's conservation and safeguard, and this inspire us to donate 2% of our turnover to project in support of our city.


Conservation of the artworks of Gallerie dell’ Accademia

Conservative restoration of the second noble floor of Palazzo Carminati

Stone elements and stucco decorations in Francesco Morosini State Middle School, Venice, 2020-21

This is one of our latest works. The conservative intervention concerned the marmorino ornaments with polychrome bands and stuccos in relief in the central salon and in one classroom; as well as the wooden beamed ceilings, the stone doorways, the windows and the venetian floors. After the accurate wiping process on marmorino and stucco surfaces, we proceeded with the surface removal, the consolidation of marmorini and the stucco intregration, followed by the pictorial retouching. The intervention was made possible thanks to the PON funds coordinated by MIUR and the Municipality of Venice.
