After her crowning, Queen Elizabeth and her husband moved to Buckingham Palace, in the centre of London. As many of her ancestors, however, she spends a lot of time in the Castle of Windsor, which is in the West of London and is considered as the real house from all the British monarchs. Queen Elizabeth II often chooses to spend many week-ends of the year at the castle, using it at the same time to arrange both official and private meetings.

Berti had the pleasure to re-build the inlaid wooden floor with inlays and pattern floors of the Westminster’s Castle, respecting the original wooden floor which was destroyed during the terrible fire in November 1992. The laser performances since ever characterize the worldwide prestige of the company Berti, by exploiting the modern design techniques  of Berti technical dept. The company,  apart from being the first to use the laser technology  applied to inlay, is also provided with the most advanced informatic system and with the most modern machines for the production of  inlays. That  allows  Berti  to propose a wide range of solutions and to create many kinds of wooden floor, which represent the personality of people who live in it. These are different fields, but very versatile among them, also for who does not live in a castle as  Elizabeth II.
