Open Care Art Advisory
areas of intervention
Historic houses have complex requirements and problems that, if tackled individually, can lead to an expensive and inefficient form of management.
We are able to provide a qualified consultancy, identifying management priorities based on a first identification of the effective amount of the estate.
Our experts, members of RICS (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), use methods studied precisely for the identification not only of the potential “market value” but also of the cultural value of the asset.
Objects of a heritage valuation are not only art collections and historic furnishings but also the artistic finishings of buildings that are an integral part of historic houses, such as frescos, wood paneled ceilings, stonework, stuccos, garden sculptures or those linked to the architecture, archives and ecclesiastic assets.
Our Conservation and Restoration experts can provide the indications for correct conservation and can study both ordinary and extraordinary maintenance plans, including for the containment of costs. We have refined a valuation method for the reconstruction of historic houses for insurance purposes that is unique in this field and takes into consideration the artistic, artisan and construction peculiarities of these unique objects.
