Collection of 1300 glass plates negatives and their related prints, documenting the work of Giannino Marchig (1897-1983), especially as a conservator, and showing paintings and sculptures in various stages of conservation. This archive came to Villa I Tatti through Fiorella Gioffredi Superbi, daughter of Geremia Gioffredi, Berenson’s estate manager, to whom Marchig entrusted his archive before leaving Italy for Switzerland.
