Adopt a Cloister

Made in Cloister is a project started in Naples which aims to combine the promotion and innovation of artisan traditions and the protection of architectural heritage with the help of artists and designers. Among the many initiatives are the restoration works on the sixteenth-century frescoes of the small cloister of the church of Santa Caterina a Formiello, after 150 years of neglect. The frescoes, covered with seven layers of plaster and dirt, will be restored by the students of the restoration class of the Academy of Fine Arts of Naples, with which Made in Cloister has signed an agreement. Made in Cloister has created a journal, with photos and interviews with Academy students and day-by-day information about the restoration works: every day, hundreds of Facebook followers keep up-to-date on the works.
