Piano restoration requires a delicate work because it is not a furniture, it is a musical instrument, complex object, requiring minimal musical knowledge to put back in use. Upright piano ”Carl Bechstein” raised multiple issues, from legs replaced with those of a table, to veneer, metalics elements, lace and felt damaged. Once complete disassembled, the hardest stage of the restoration was to consolidate the assembly with organic glue (isinglass) and fastening strap in place all elements, with clamping systems, so that piano regain functionality.
