The conservation of Turin's Cappella della Sindone has finally been finished after damage incurred after a fire in 1997.  This late seventeenth century setting was commissioned by the Duke of Savoy Vittorio Amedeo II to house the famous Turin Shroud. It was designed by the engineer and mathematician Antonio Bertola and completed between the years 1688-1694. The Chapel was reopened to the public in 2018, however, the full restoration has only just been completed twenty four years after the fire.
