Accompanying his father Giuseppe Carlo Bobbi in his activities the young Orazio learned some restoration techniques.

With simple materials such as cement and plaster, iron and wood, glues and lacquers, Orazio Bobbi made several restorations, both reconstructive and conservative, of different works.

This activity developed it mainly at the end of the war and less frequently in the following years.

From the experience of studying at the Faculty of Architecture was born the passion for modeling that developed until the ’70s, making numerous models of palaces, buildings, etc …

Of its restoration and architectural models are now available few images but many verbal and visual testimonies of relatives and acquaintances.
