Restoration of an earthquake damaged work

Contributing to the restoration of damaged art pieces to help the Italian regions hurt by the 2016 earthquake: this is the objective that the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum has set for itself by activating a fundraising campaign during the exhibit, “The Return of Cola dell’Amatrice.”

Restoring damaged works of art from the areas struck by the earthquake so that they can begin, again, to recover, starting with the highlighting of their own beautiful nature and art: this is the reason for the fund-raising campaign begun during the exhibit, “The Return of Cola dell’Amatrice.” Works come from the Civic Painting Gallery of Ascoli Piceno, taking part in the “Adopt a Museum” campaign promoted by ICOM Italy (May 27 – August 27, 2017).

With the funds collected, a 15th century statue of the Virgin will be restored. Originally from the church of San Pellegrino in Norcia, it now is housed in the storerooms of the Church of the Holy Nail in Spoleto. After being restored, the statue will go to the Diocese Museum of Milan.
