Restoration on Bramante’s West Wall Begins

Restoration on the Bramante Courtyard continues as the project enters its third stage of restoration–the West Wall. The scaffolding is now fully erected on the this wall, behind which tourists walk the galleries of the Candelabra and the former Vatican Library. In addition to continuing the application of the fresh white plaster, restorers will also work to recover the painted optical illusion of the fake windows under the arches of the wall’s facade.
