Art transport

Italy is the country holding the greatest capital of tangible cultural heritage in the world (60% of global cultural property is found in or was made in Italy). Much of this heritage is requested for loan by international museums for display in exhibitions.

Art transport is a delicate matter, and international regulations have become ever more restrictive in order to better protect the works themselves.

Composite materials hold a winning card in this arena compared to traditional solutions.

The light weight and rigidity of composites is ideal for packing crates and supports that can safeguard the artworks. The moldability of these materials means the crate can be made to the exact shape required. This technology is particularly suitable for three-dimensional pieces.

Sophisticated monitoring technologies can be integrated into such composite crates, allowing for the continuous oversight of parameters such as temperature, humidity and strains to preserve the integrity of the works.
