Restoration of Ancient Frescoes

The restoration of the beautiful wall paintings in the residential units of Terrace House 2 in the centre of the ancient city is continuing. From May to September specialists from Italy and Turkey are restoring frescoes of four rooms. Along with Room 17 and 18 (already started in 2010) work is carried out in Room 36a and 36. The treatment includes stabilization, surface cleaning, partly reversing previous restorations, paint consolidation and conditioning, filling paint losses and expert retouching. The methods aim to preserve the original, and to restore its full beauty.
