Title: Sistine Chapel under attack?
Post by: Chris on March 14, 2021, 03:05:45 PM
We've downsized, yet again, and moved into an even smaller house, so we've started sorting through the 'archives'. Anyway, whilst reading through some old papers I'd kept dating from 2010, I found an interesting article about the effect the thousands of human visitors were having on the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. Seems the sheer volume of perspiration and dust shed by the visitors is taking it's toll on the murals etc. and the climate control systems were in dire need of an upgrade to cope with the mess. Just made me wonder if the problem was solved or is it an ongoing issue? After 11 years you'd hope it has been, but does anyone know the answer??

The link takes you to the original article if you might like to read it... :)
