Rome is an extremely old city with a staggeringly rich history and some of the most priceless works of art in all the world. In fact, it seems like you can stand on any street corner in the city and be no more than a stone’s throw from some famous work of art or architecture. These bastions of human history are not immune to the inedibility of entropy however. Moisture and time are the culprits that led to the restoration of many a famous work of art, including Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. Painted between 1508 and 1512, the Sistine Chapel has long been at the center of Vatican activity due to the massive frescoes which adorn the walls. The paint and plaster has undergone several restoration projects in the 500 years since Michelangelo completed the work and that has allowed the modern generation to enjoy the frescoes as was intended by the artist.
The beautiful murals on the walls and ceiling of the Sistine Chapel needed significant restoration for a variety of problems including cracks in the plaster, fading and chipping paint, carbon dioxide damage, water damage among other issues. Restoring art is best conducted by someone who has extensive experience working in the field. Restoring a painting in your living room is one thing, but something as significant as the Sistine Chapel need the utmost care and precision.
