Up to the Genius!
For the preparation of the splendid exhibition “L’altra tela di Leonardo” (Leonardo’s other canvas) organised at the Filatoio in Caraglio (CN), it was necessary to move the fittings and the important historical reproductions with a precision and accuracy that only a Merlo telescopic handler could ensure, controlled by the skilful hands of Gian Paolo Fresia, an expert trainer of CFRM.
The most demanding operation was when, having lifted a box more than three metres wide, it had to be positioned in one of the exhibition rooms on the first floor of the Filatoio facilities. The only access, given its size and weight, was a historic window of the room.
Although there were less than three centimetres between the box and the valuable window uprights, the extreme precision of the boom side-shift system of the Panoramic P 40.17 and the careful control of the controls by Gian Paolo allowed the load to be positioned very accurately, to the millimetre, under the attentive and even somewhat apprehensive gaze of the technicians and supervisors from the Fine Arts superintendence.
