A meticulous undertaking
to restore glory to the past
Lengthy and meticulous restoration efforts have rendered Spello's Villa of Mosaics even more splendid. This intricate and complex initiative involved the cleaning and consolidation of the individual tiles. Not to mention considerable patience on the part of skilled restorers!
The restoration work was carried out upon both the mosaics and the remnants of the polychrome plasterwork on the walls.
"Like the other mosaics previously discovered, the Radiant Sun mosaic's execution technique was of an extremely high level, thus reaffirming the stature of this Roman home just outside the walls of Spello."The restorer, Pier Angelo Fiacchi
