Cobar SpA has carried out restoration work for the Royal Palace of Naples, improving safety and accessibility standards, as well as functional and engineering upgrades.

The works focused on the entire building, aimed at enhancing reception and orientation services for visits to the city and the region. Restoration and consolidation operations on all sections of the façades have been performed simultaneously on different types of materials: from the piperno, to the marble of the statues and coats of arms in Piazza del Plebiscito, including architectural elements made of plaster. The number and the complexity of the operations required contributions from a vast array of professionals.

The careful use of new technologies and materials has allowed to achieve a result in line with restoration standards.

The consolidation operations on the stone elements were carried out through the use of void seals and steel bar micro-hinges, created with custom size and diameter calculations; the plasterworks focused on the architectural elements, with the consolidation of the existing ones and restoration of more complex sections, as in the case of friezes located on the lintels that have been “reconstructed” with the help of existing photographic documentation.

A crucial role was played by the restoration interventions on the colours on the façades with new materials and partial (creation of the damaged or missing decorative elements in iron in a laboratory) or total replacement of the existing windows with new ones, fitted with the same shape but improved by suitable adjustments to meet regulations. The interventions aimed at restoring the use of abandoned spaces are also crucially important: the creation of a new bookshop and self-service area in carefully restored rooms; the creation of internal vertical connections and new areas dedicated to archives and libraries in the abandoned rooms facing Via Acton.
