WHERE WE BEGIN TO ESTABLISH
The Tahoe Trust ™
to establish our programs in architecture conservation and preservation planning education.
It is the distinction in continuity that identifies tradition.
Emanuelo Sorbo On Liliana Grassi d'Architettura Volume 26-2005
Modern restoration is a discipline based on individual and collective values of life. It studies the monument, paying attention to all of the historical layers, setting itself on a democratic plane of free choice in a historic space that is a public space, a piece of the site's culture, in which all of its inhabitants are trustees. The discipline of restoration rejects abstract individual formulations of life, to set its goal as the free enjoyment of art by all people; the awareness that this concept produces is a moral exigency to respect human dignity.
Those who work in restoration cannot but cultivate this dignity in an absolutely special way. --
Liliana Grassi- Architect, Scholar, & Professor at Polytechnic of Milan

In the early 1950's a typical evening's entertainment for Ripley kids was sitting in the bus shelter watching the traffic, in the vain hope that a sports car would go by, and once every six months we might see an Aston Maritn
or a Ferrari, which would make our day.
