The Municipality of Venice together with the prestigious watches company called Piaget have taken the whole burden of the intervention on the 16th Century towers in San Marco square, including the watch machine and its mechanisms. The first phase of work led to the restoration of the Clock, in exact coincidence with the 500 years of life of the complex.
The next steps included the consolidation of the Clock Tower and the repositioning with the full reactivation of all functions, and the consequent transformation of the interior rooms in the house of the caretaker-watchmaker in museum spaces for the visit.
Given the architectural, material and decorative artifact of the project, it has been developed in the smallest details with a wise study of the construction regulations and a careful analysis of the materials and their degradation.
