The article intends to report the restoration treatment of a set of stained glass panels, from the middle of the 20th century, attributed to the Casa Genta atelier, the largest in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in southern Brazil. The panels had imported glass and painted in grisaille, enamels, and silver stain. The author was the artisan master Francisco Huguet, who worked in atelier Casa Genta in 1951 to 197 ?, from Oriun, Spain, he came from the headquarters of the important French atelier Maumejean. The panels were distributed in relatively low windows, in three groups, on the satir steps of a traditional Catholic school, private of the City of Porto Alegre, College Bom Jesus de Sévignè. In addition to fractures and gaps the panels had an important detachment in the pictorial layer which received treatment for stabilization in its entirety and also a partial treatment of chromatic reintegration. As this is a little reversible intervention this stage of treatment was decided punctually from the reflection of each situation. The treatment took place, in situ and in atelier and its work team was formed by a group of academics. The treatment, besides solving contemporary demands at a technical-scientific level, was based on the symbolic character of the heritage, on the interest of the guardians, and on the process of building knowledge from the practical experience, in academics from the Federal University of Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
