A massive restoration project has begun in St. Peter’s Square, designed to restore the columns, statues, and moldings to their original vivid colors. The project is expected to take 30 months.
The restoration work has already begun on the columns, designed by Bernini. The work will also include all of the colonnade, the pillars, the fountains, and even the lamps in St. Peter’s Square.
