Project: Palazzo Neoclassico in Via San Nicolò – Restoration, internal renovation, static consolidation and new glass cover of the inner courtyard
Place: Trieste (TS) – Italy
Description: The Palazzo Neoclassico, a protected building constructed at the beginning of the 19th century, is located on the border of the “Borgo teresiano” in the historic centre of Trieste. The building is a significant historical-architectural testimony to Trieste not only because James Joyce stayed there, but also for the precious ornamental elements characteristic of neoclassical architecture.
With a view to a philological restoration, the work involving the permanent interior includes the following conservative restoration works:
- Restoration and static consolidation of ornamental stone elements;
- Restoration and reconstruction of all wrought iron elements;
- Creation of a large glass cover over the inner courtyard;
- Restoration of all external and internal doors and windows;
- Internal restructuring with partial resizing of internal spaces;
- Static consolidation and underpinning of foundations.
