Caryatid of Villa Corsini during the restoration work
In preparation for the opening of the Museum of the Imperial Fora, many of the pieces now on display first had to be restored.
The opening of the Museum however, does not mean that restoration work has come to an end – quite the contrary in fact! With new displays planned, the opportunity to lend items to outside exhibitions and the need to conserve pieces currently in storage, the restoration department is going to be kept busy for a long time.
This section of the web site will be used by the Museum of the Imperial Fora to provide regular up-dates on the restoration work being carried out now and in the future.
