Temple of Portunus project - Rome

An assessment of the architectural surfaces, the frescoes and the structure of the Temple of Portunus was commenced in 1999. The first phase of the study was conducted on the external cornice of the front which overlooks the river Tiber, and the internal frescoes on the western side of the temple. This analysis included photographic documentation, an assessment of the original construction materials, their condition and targeted investigations. An intervention project based on 1999 assessment study, together with new results from subsequent assessments, was presented in 2004. The project won the World Monument Watch 2004 contest and was included in the funding programs of the World Monument Fund and the Soprintendenza Speciale ai Beni Archeologici di Roma in 2006. These funds were used to restore the external and internal architectural surfaces in tufa, travertine and stucco as well as the internal frescos. (see sections "Wall Paintings", "Detachments and applications", "Stone materials and stuccoes").
In 2013, this temple won the First International Prize for the Enhancement of the Cultural Heritage, the Italian Heritage Award for the archaeological restorations.
