Secret Domus is involved in cultural and artistic heritage projects to develop and promote Italian art. Find out how we recently discovered and are in the process of restoring a 14th century fresco in Tuscany and we transformed it into the ETRURIO Museum.

The Forgotten Fresco

In 2016 Andrea Sozzi Sabatini bought an apartment in Scarlino (Tuscany, Italy) in which there is a fresco whose attribution, still unknown, has been traced back to a fine hand of the second half of 1400, probably Sienese.

Besides being a staggering discovery, the Tuscan fresco offers a unique opportunity to enhance and promote Italian excellence in artistic restoration.

A video documenting the work of the restorers Marco Marchetti and Isabella Gubbini in the recovery of fresco is currently in progress.
