Restoration of the church of the PurificationCaronno Pertusella (Va)

The project was divided in two lots and tendered separately, for both the nature and order of the work to be realised. The first lot consisted in the removal of the humidity and the mitigation of the internal microclimate, the consolidation of the roof and bell tower, the replacement of the electrical and heating systems, the elimination of architectural barriers as well as the restoration of the church exterior and the interior surfaces of the nave including the side chapels. While in the second lot the frescos of the presbytery and the apse were restored.

Thanks to a thorough examination, once work had begun, of the areas accessible only with scaffolding (such as the attic and the belfry) including investigations conducted by the laboratory of the Milan Polytechnic (infrared and gravimetric analysis, material tests, study of the wall composition and symptoms of structural instability) a complete diagnostic picture was developed, to verify and refine the original project choices.

The criteria that guided, the work, (of refurbishment, structural rehabilitation, technological upgrading and architectural reordering) respected the indispensable principles of the restoration doctrine; scarce invasiveness, respect of the material and historical physiognomy of the monument and the elimination of elements foreign and/or prejudicial to its conservation.

Abstract:
The Church of Santa Maria la Nova, or of the Purification, built by a lay fraternity in the village of Caronno, owes its historic and artistic interest not only to its celebrated choir frescos, (realised by Giovan Pietro Lomazzo), but also in belonging to a group of ‘Marian’ religious sites disseminated throughout the Milan territories by the Counter-Reformation that constitutes an “open air museum” worthy of promotion.
