Teatro di San Carlo to Restore Giant Theatre Curtain

May 4 2021

Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

The Teatro di San Carlo in Naples have announced their plans to conserve their enormous painted theatre curtain. The painting of Parnassus, which measures 12 metres high x 17 metres wide, was completed by artist Giuseppe Mancinelli (1818-1875) in 1854. Surprisingly, especially given the curtain's current appearance, the enormous painting had been treated as recently as 2011. The new campaign of restoration will be undertaken by the Italian company Ambra Restauri.
