This book showcases the most impressive restoration projects of the last twenty years, from the eighteenth-century façade of the Church of Jesuits and early-Renaissance façade of the Church of San Zaccaria in Venice, to the Chapel of the Blessed Giovanni Orsini and the Romanesque portal of the Cathedral of Saint Lawrence in Croatia.
Beautifully photographed in breathtaking detail, this volume tells the story of the crucial role that Venetian Heritage has in preserving the art of Venice both in Italy and in the areas once part of the Republic of Venice.
