Chestnut wood was used as a structural material for important wooden building frames and artefacts of demo ethno anthropological interest. The wood of this species is found less frequently in artistic artefacts. So the aim of this work is to examine some artefacts of both artistic and above all devotional typologies.
Conservation problems are addressed with examples, in relation to modern methods of operation.
