Restoration of the monastery of the beata Antonia

L’Aquila (AQ), Italy


One of the most beautiful frescoed churches in the L’Aquila region, was among the most damaged by the 2009 earthquake. The structural project succeed in isolating the inner wall to preserve the beautiful 15th century frescoes by Francesco da Montereale, as well as recovering the columns to their vertical alignment, reconstructing the collapsed portions of the cross vaults and removing the heavy concrete roof to restore the old wooden truss roof.
