Doge’s Fireplace just restored!!!

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Yesterday the restoration of one of seven Doge Palace’s fireplaces finished!

This one (restored with the finantial contribution of Luciano Marsilli owner of “le Maschere” and “La Vecia Cavana”) has been made between 1486 and 1492 by Lombardo for Doge Agostino Barbarigo. It’s a beautifull example of venetian sculpture of the period, it looks like a lace!!! On the back of the fireplace we can now admire the image of a salamander (half reptile and half fire): it was hided under many layers of painting!

The restoration was under the control of Soprintendenza, who appreciate the job of the artisans involved. Also the Mayor of Venice has been happy of the results.

These restoration ar part of the project “Veneziani x Venezia”: everyone can now finance the restoration of public treasures of Venice! For more information you can check .
