The Certosa e Museo di San Martino in Naples, Italy, reopened last week to visitors. Amongst their new displays this summer are a set of restored fragments of sixteenth century sculpture known as the Cona dei Lani. These monumental terracotta artworks, originally housed in the city's Sant’Eligio Maggiore church, were badly damaged after bombing during WWII. The video above gives a brief history of the artworks and their new display within the museum.
