Rain, weathering and the hot sun beating down day after day contributed to drying out the red Verona marble on the columns of Hotel Roma. The surface was so bleached that it almost looked like a different material than that of the façade of the hotel, inside the colonnade. The stuccoed travertine side columns were also showing their age: black dirt from traffic and smog had penetrated deep down into the material, dulling its natural shine. The task of restoring the marble to its original state was commissioned to Treatment Specialist Alberto Sgarbossa, a young, highly-motivated expert who often works with Fila. The Verona red marble and pale travertine were washed with FILAPS87 Heavy Duty Cleaner, eliminating all the dirt accumulated over the years. It was then protected with FILASTONE PLUS Matte Finish Stone Enhancer for all natural stone. In addition, the pale travertine was protected with FILAMP90 Natural Look Sealer.
