Palazzo Tondü

Lionza, Centovalli, Ticino, 2018, historic building restoration:

The restoration project of the heirtage ensemble, developed in 2006, was updated after discussions between the foundation Casa Tondü and the Office of Cultural Heritage in Ticino.

The intended use of the Palazzo has not changed from the original proposal, but to better define the interventions of the project it was agreed to deepen the study of the buildings with stratigraphic survey and photographic surveys. Therefore, students of the conservation and restoration class at the SUPSI headed by Prof. Jacopo Gilardi and photographer Sabrina Montiglia were involved. The results of the study made it possible to redefine a new conservation project, to restore dignity to this important historical testimony of the Centovalli. As a further project partner, the foundation „Vacanze in edifici storici“ („Holidays in historical monuments“) will take over the restoration and future operation of one of the buildings.
