Restoration of the Cappella Emiliani

Responding to the Superintendency’s urgent appeal for attention to the Cappella Emiliani, attached to the façade of the Church of San Michele, the Venice in Peril Fund financed preliminary diagnostic surveys and analyses prior to the drafting of a major restoration project.

The Fund also made representations to the Magistrato alle Acque, the authority responsible for traffic regulation in the Lagoon, asking for speed limits to be strictly imposed on boats passing the island in an attempt to reduce the damage constantly being caused to the building and its foundations by excessive wash.
