Last week at the National Archaeological Museum of Florence (MAF) a new exhibition space was inaugurated including a 7th century BCE Picenian double tomb from Novilara restored by SACI Conservation Team and students. The Picenian Tomb of Novilara has been studied by: Marina Micozzi (Department of Cultural Heritage at the University of Tuscia), Silvia Gori and R. Settesoldi (freelancers, Florence), and restored under the guidance of Renzo Giachetti, Manuela Nistri, and SACI Conservation instructor, Nora Marosi, with the collaboration of conservation students of Studio Art Centers International (SACI) in Florence. Conservation-restoration was completed with the support of the J.Q. Worthington Foundation, Inc. Here are some images from the event:
