The restoration of the estate collection and decorative painting of the Seteais Palace, now the Hotel Tivoli Palácio de Seteais, was a complex undertaking involving 14 trades and around 30 technicians over 10 months.
This project was coordinated by the Conservation and Restoration department in close collaboration with the Masters of the various workshops.

The Ricardo do Espírito Santo Silva Foundation was responsible for inventory, disassembly, conditioning, transport, storage and conservation and restoration of all the hotel’s mobile heritage.
This collection is composed of around 2000 pieces of various genres – of which 1122 were identified for intervention – including furniture, light fixtures, textiles, easel paintings, prints and porcelain. FRESS also intervened in the rehabilitation and restoration of the mural paintings that cover almost all the halls and rooms of the palace (walls and ceilings).
