The Face Lift Continues

Before and After - the reconstruction of the Grande Madame of Gualdo continues. Scaffolding has been erected and the 1930 plaster is being chipped away by hand to reveal the locally hewn natural stone.

12th century building techniques are being used to restore the facade to its original honey coloured exterior.

Desperate for the completion of the outside so we can see what lurks beneath the plaster internally and finally see the much talked about frescoes.
