Restaurierung - Irene Tomedi
The salvage, restoration, conservation and documentation of textile cultural assets.

When the textiles found their way into the newly founded museums around the turn of the 20th century, the question of how to care for them arose for the first time, not with a view to reuse, but rather to preserve them as a cultural heritage for the future. In addition to the preservation of the original substance, the top principle is that every addition made in the course of a preservation must be reversible without causing damage, so that later generations with advanced preservation technology can make a correction. In cooperation with the Monuments Office of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano – South Tyrol, Office for Archeology, the textile grave find of Baron Christoph von Wolkenstein from the 16th century from the parish church of St. Michael in Bressanone is shown in the exhibition
