The lunettes of the Sistine Chapel


‘The restoration of the Sistine Chapel may well be regarded as a secular achievement, even the more so since it managed to give back its ancient splendour to Michelangelo’s work. This exhibition is a part of a larger travelling exhibition towards year 2000. The ‘Cultural Training Project: Jubilee 2000′ was devis-ed by teachers and students of the Italian Institute of Art, Crafts-manship and Restoration, who reproduced the lunettes and characters of the Sistine Chapel on frescoes, while the coats of arms of Popes of Holy Years were depicted on tables. A wide collection of photos shows to visitors the careful analysis and the interventions carried out by some of the Institute’s experts on this much-appreciated artistic masterpiece.’
