On the 17th of June "The Triumph of Death" by Buffalmacco will return in the Camposanto in Pisa. A long restoration was completed a few days ago. The news was announced on the 7th of April in Pisa during a press conference held by the director and chief restorators, who discovered new details on the masterpiece.
The famous fresco cycle was damaged on the 27th of July 1944 by an incendiary bomb dropped by Allied aircraft. Restoration works have been going on since then.
