The old artisan workshop in Via dei Velluti 21R is located in the Santo Spirito quarter of Florence.
Together with the San Frediano area of the city this is the heart of Florentine craftsmanship.
Here, Renato Olivastri restores wooden objects in general, and in particular, furniture and inlaid furniture.
All the work is carried out by the owner and the only member of the firm.
He collaborates with highly qualified professionals for specific interventions on gilding, sculpture, decoration and paintings.
His client base is composed of private individuals, antique dealers, painting restoration laboratories, workshops specialising in the restoration of gilt objects and the Superintendency of the Italian Fine Arts Ministry.
In addition to furniture and inlaid furniture, other types of objects that are treated range from: gilt or decorated frames, wood candlesticks, polychrome wood statues and paintings on wood panel.
His professional restoration activity is complemented by his teaching activity at the Istituto per l’Arte e il Restauro Palazzo Spinelli in the areas of marquetry restoration and restoration of wood for panel paintings.
