Project description

Conservative repair to tackle a wide range of problems to this badly deteriorated monument. In July 2020 these were identified as including: effects of rising levels of mineral laden moisture causing marble surface losses and oxidisation of iron cramps with resultant discolouring; subsidence of front parts of the Istrian stone supporting blocks; loss of mortar between bricks in core; marble surface losses due to earlier applications of paraloid substance; dirt caused by dust attaching to waxy/humid surfaces. In July 2021 the main conservative repair project started and will take about a year to complete.
