Operational Stage of the Restoration of the Carracci Gallery Launched in Rome

In January 2013, restoration work will begin at the Carracci Gallery, which was completed in the Palazzo Farnese between the end of the sixteenth and the beginning of the seventeenth century by the painter Annibale Carracci with help from his brother Agostino and a number of colleagues and collaborators. A complete restoration of the gallery, stucco, and wall paintings is planned. One year of preparatory work was necessary to develop this ambitious project, and the sponsoring organizations, in unison with the scientific committee members*, are pleased to announce the official call for proposals.
