The restoration work of the Madonna del Parto from Pieve di San Gennaro in Lucchesia continues at the LEO-LEV Exhibition Centre, which was elected as a “workshop” for the restoration of the important terracotta work.

Under the guidance of Filippo Tattini – a cultural heritage restorer specialising in ceramic, plastic and vitreous materials – restoration work continues on the sculpture, the only one of its kind in the world made of terracotta and measuring approximately 1.68 cm in its natural state.

Today, a short interview with Tattini on the state of recovery of this particularly mysterious and singular work of art
