Travelling exhibitions demand expert packing
Gosselin completed a new fine art move for the National Archeologic Museum, Aquilea. Twenty-five works of ancient art had to be moved from Italy to Lithuania, and the museum was looking for a packing expert.
“Assignments like these always require extra care,” team operation leader Andrea Cardelli of the Italian office explains. “We used a combination of the synthetic fabric Tyvek and cardboard boxes to carefully pack all of the paintings and sculptures. A condition report was required for each piece of art that was loaded into the truck. When the packing was finished, the owner of the museum was very satisfied with our service.”

The Museum of Aquileia has one of the largest collections on the Roman Empire and was asked to send art to be included in the travelling exhibition “1,000,000 steps: The Amber Road from Rome to the Baltic.” Historical artifacts have also arrived from Austria, Croatia, Slovenia and Poland. The exhibition is currently open to the public at the National Museum of Lithuania.
