Donation of painting tools for the LIMESEUM
Nespoli has donated a wealth of painting tools for the restoration of the wooden facade of the LIMESEUM in Ruffenhofen.
The museum, which is located near Nespoli´s German central office in Dinkelsbühl, was opened in 2012 and shows the ancient life in the border area of the Limes during the Roman Empire.
Because of the weather, the wooden facade of the building is quite damaged in some parts. That is why the museum´s friend´s association decided that a restoration is necessary. This restoration takes place voluntarily by the members of the friend´s association. To support this project, Nespoli has donated painting tools in value of approx. 1500€. That includes brushes, paint containers, masking foils, adhesive tapes and rollers.
The official handing over of the donation took place in the so-called Roman Park, the archaeological area around the LIMESEUM. Katharina Wörle (Head of Quality Management, Law and Personnel) and Jeannette Heriadin (Quality Management) presented our company to the museum´s director Dr. Matthias Pausch and Bernd Großmann, leader of the friend´s association. Afterwards our merchandiser Matthias Mäffert took over the practical part and explained the special features of our provided tools. As a qualified painter and lacquerer, he also had a few professional tips for facade painting.
„As UNESCO world heritage, the Limes is one of the cultural and touristic highlights of our region. And since painting and restoration are two of our core competences, it is clear that we want to support the museum with their project. Especially since we have a certain affinity to Romans due to our Italian parent company“, says managing director Michael Reuter with a smile about the recent donation.
