Jacopo Tintoretto's Wedding Feast at Cana restauration

Yesterday we had the incredible opportunity to join the inauguration of the restorayion of Jacopo Tintoretto's Wedding Feast at Cana. This charming painting has returned to its place high on the wall in the sacristy of the church of the Salute! 

Jacopo Tintoretto’s Wedding Feast at Cana is a painting of substantial size (14.4 ft x 19.3 ft) and now hangs high on the wall of the sacristy in the church of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice. Originally painted for the refectory of the convent of the Crociferi, the canvas was transferred to the Salute following the suppression of the religious order in the seventeenth century.

So interesting listeting to Don Fabrizio Favaro of the Salute, Alberto Nardi from the Board of Directors of Save Venice, Amalia Basso from the Superintendency of Fine Arts and Monuments of Venice, and conservator Valentina Piovan and their presentations during the inauguration. This restoration was made possible thanks to the generous support of Save Venice Chairman Emeritus Dr. Randolph H. Guthrie, and his wife, Save Venice Board Member Beatrice H. Guthrie.

Thank you Save Venice to taking care of our Heritage!
