The key activity of the project is the overall restoration of 46 paintings from the mobiliary of the Archbishop’s Chateau in Kroměříž. The set of more than 500 paintings at the chateau is a unique collection on the European level and consists of canvases and panels of renowned authors (Titian Vecellio, Anthony van Dyck, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Paolo Veronese, Hans von Aachen and others). The core of the collection consists of paintings bought by Bishop Karl von Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn in 1673 (and since this year testified by enumerations of episcopal and later archiepiscopal collections); this was supplemented by other pieces of art during the following centuries and thus a unique collection of high artistic value, collection preserved in the authentic setting up to this day, was created. Paintings are installed in two ways: the most precious ones in a modern way in a chateau gallery, the others in the original Baroque installation, panel gallery.

Based on a constantly updated inventory of the collection, precious pieces of art were selected for the project and divided into two categories. The first one is the “emergency condition”, where some damage has occurred but a large part of the original authenticity and appearance can be given back to the item by restoration, while stopping further degradation. The second category is “in danger”: items that could be damaged if they are not restored soon. Most of the selected paintings are located in the so-called panel gallery, which is a part of the tourist guided tour. Some paintings are located in the chateau gallery and there are also some sporadic cases of items in depository that would be presented to the public when the restoration is finished.
