Work moves slowly forward on massive cleaning project in St. Peter's Square
Catholic World News - March 15, 2012
Vatican workers are making steady progress on a massive restoration project: cleaning the marble columns of the famous Bernini colonnade around St. Peter’s Square.
Begun in 2009, the work is expected to take another 3 years. Progress is slow because the workers must be careful not to chip the marble and because they must allow full access to St. Peter’s Square for pilgrims and tourists.
