Last month, UNOPS team shared the progress of works at the Mosaic of the facade of the National Historic Museum, part of the EU4Culture project during a visit on the site the EU Ambassador, Mr. Luigi Soreca, Minister of Culture Ms. Elva Margariti.

 

 

Together with some of the mosaic's authors, the UNOPS conservation team shared important facts about the very delicate work that is being developed and the damage that is being repaired.

The restoration teams are documenting the tesserae of the mosaic in a 1:1 scale in tracing paper. An area of 452 square meters has to be fully documented and over 113 different shades of colors have been identified so far.​
