REQUEST

The building was damaged during the earthquakes that struck Emilia in 2012. The tambour was seriously damaged, causing detachment and collapsing which, in turn, damaged the roof and the interior. The walls and frescoes suffered widespread damage throughout the building.

SOLUTION

CMB carried out the structure consolidation work and part of the restoration, continuing with the final lot of finishings, structures and true and proper restoration. It dealt with the structures, the roof, the paintings and the systems. The building was reopened for worship on Saturday 25 March 2017 with a solemn ceremony led by Cardinal Pietro Parolin and with the presence of many other cardinals, bishops and priests.
