Restauro


Santa Maria della Rotonda

The little chapel of Santa Maria della Rotonda was restored, both inside and out, at the time of the Jubilee works. The work carried out in 1998-99, however, did not include the installations which have become necessary now that the building has been turned into an exhibition space for the Paolo Cresci Emigration Foundation.

The works to be carried out in 2004 have the following objectives:

  • installing heating with non-invasive electric radiators on the skirting boards;
  • installing an electrical system with sockets suitable for lighting equipment that will light both the chapel and the exhibition’s display cabinets to the best effect.

The work will begin in relation to the artistic features of the chapel and, if necessary, will be followed by restoration of the frescoes and the terracotta block floor.
