The large restoration site continues. We are restoring the vaults over the matroneum and the plasters of the dome, which over time have exhibited defects including detachments and crumbling and other phenomena due to a loss of consistency of the binders.

Nobody likes to see a building as magnificent as the Baptistery covered in scaffolding, but this is an essential part of the never ending restoration challenge that we face in preserving the artistic and religious heritage.

The monument will be closed to visitors from 11 October 2021 to 9 January 2022.
