The ongoing restoration of the cathedral of Lucca, whose results are progressively revealed to the public since the exhibition on Matteo Civitali in 2004, allows you to return to talk about the history, works and architecture of the cathedral, the spiritual center of Diocese, place of acceptance and diffusion of new languages ​​and styles.


The conference: Architectural transformations in the cathedral: the frescoes and the  Sacramento chapel, curated by Chiara Lussu, are scheduled today September 15th.


During the meeting, sponsored by the Municipality of Castelnuovo Garfagnana, will be illustrated the historical-artistic aspects, concerning in particular the structural and architectural interventions that have made it possible again to enjoy, an area which has been inaccessible for over twenty years. The end of the works of this part of the temple, so dear not only to the Lucchese citizens as it is tied to  well-established customs and habits, such as the visit to the funeral monument of Ilaria del Carretto (currently in the Sacristy), was welcomed with particular satisfaction by both faithfuls and visitors.
