Two topless tower cranes over a historic district of Florence

Two topless tower cranes: a Raimondi MRT159 (equipped with the Deluxe R126 cabin) and a Raimondi MRT84, were erected by the Official Raimondi Cranes agent, Assistedile Srl., in a historic district of Florence in Italy. These two machines are used in the construction of a new luxury hospitality property, as well as the renovation and restoration of the San Paolo Apostolo church and convent, more commonly known as San Paolino. The cranes should stay onsite for approximately 16 months.

“We were pleased to take part in this important project in such a revered district in Florence. It required intense jobsite preparation as both cranes – positioned on embedded elements – had to meet strict provisions set by the archaeological superintendents that are put in place to protect the country’s historic structures and sites,” said Luciano Friso, Managing Director, Assistedile.
