In the countryside of East Anglia, a striking red brick mansion dominates the surrounding park. It is the Christchurch Mansion of Ipswich whose door has become the protagonist of a curious story. In 1800 master carpenters and glassmakers built a majestic gate, witnessing the Victorian age and its cultural heritage. In 2011, some thieves violated the museum and to make the whole building safer and more protected, it was decided to build the gate from scratch, reinforcing it with steel security systems yet with the will to remain faithful to the original material and design.
A landmark project in which skilled workers created the structure by hand, reproducing even the original wood imperfections thanks to the use of innovative and avant-garde techniques. For many months, carpenters, joiners, technicians and experts were involved in the realization of a meticulous and demanding work. With careful and accurate work, the neo-gothic style door was dismantled and moved to Italy to be reproduced in all its actual beauty. Thanks to this project, the ancient and contemporary eras transcend time and space, craftsmanship and safety confirm their indissoluble bond, art and technology have become part of the same story.
