Restoration of the Sottoportico dell' Angelo

A 13th century sculpted marble angel and the archway supporting it in Calle Magno, Castello. This was a long-awaited inauguration financed by Pro Venezia Sweden and the Australian Committee for Venice. Working space was so confined that there was no alternative but to close the calle entirely for the duration of the restoration, thus blocking an extremely popular short-cut for local inhabitants, a telling example of how intimate a role art and history play in the fabric of the city.
