Over 4500 are the cultural assets, books and historical records recovered from the damage caused by the earthquake in the Center of Italy in 2016. The security interventions that the Superintendence of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape of Umbria has planned with the Opificio of the Hard Stones of Florence will cover in one year as many works as possible of those now at the Santo Chiodo storage, according to the logic of “prompt intervention” on the most serious damages, in order not to accelerate the degradation process. These operations will be accompanied by the conservation registering work, both to estimate the level of the damages and their extent in quantity as well as the priority index that will have to guide the subsequent restoration phases.
The choice of the works to be exhibited at the Fortress of Spoleto also wanted to highlight the intervention generously offered by the Vatican Museums, which at their laboratories carried out the first works on seven important works damaged, as well as the first interventions entrusted to restorers present in the Umbrian territory.
