Restoration of the Nativity's painting in the Basilica S. Giorgio Maggiore

The Venice branch of Zonta Club International undertook to fund the restoration of Jacopo Bassano's famous painting of the "Nativity" in the Basilica of S. Giorgio Maggiore.

 The Association of Private Committees is using funds donated by the Japanese Horiuchi Foundation for the restoration of a painting of St. George and the Dragon by Carpaccio from the Cappella del Conclave, also in S. Giorgio.

A private donation has enabled the Association to provide for the restoration of a statue of the Madonna over the entrance to the Church of San Samuele; and Association funds have ensured restoration of a badly damaged painting of "Armida and Rinaldo" by the seventeenth-century artist Ponzone at the Cini Foundation.
