Biographical Information:

Roberto Rosa is a principal in Serpentino Stained Glass, Inc, Needham, MA. Roberto’s experience in the restoration field, and his studies in art, began in Rome, Italy where he lived for twelve years. He joined Serpentino Stained Glass in 1988 making it his goal to specialize in quality restoration and conservation of historic stained glass windows, including master works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, John La Farge, Mary Tillinghast, D. Maitland Armstrong, Charles Connick and many others. Roberto continues to be “hands-on” on all of Serpentino’s restoration projects. Roberto has restored numerous important windows in some of America’s most prominent buildings including: The Massachusetts State House; Trinity Church in the City of Boston; Princeton University; The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston; The 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama; Temple Emanu-El, New York City; St. Thomas Episcopal Church, New York City; Houghton Chapel at Wellesley College; Nott Memorial at Union College, NY, and Boston College, to name a few. Most recently, he was the chief conservator for thirteen plated opalescent glass windows at Salve Regina University in Newport RI, designed by John La Farge, as well as a triptych designed by La Farge on exhibit at the McMullen Museum at Boston College. A Founding Member of the American Glass Guild, an international organization dedicated to education, Roberto is also a Member of The National Trust for Historic Preservation, The Association for Preservation Technology International, The British Society of Master Glass Painters and The Boston Preservation Alliance. Roberto is adept at solving difficult, structural problems and determining why a window or a section has failed and how best to restore it without compromising the original design intent of the artist.
