Domus Tiberiana - Rome

On the western slope, in the archaeological area of the Palatine Hill in Rome, stands the complex of the Palace of Tiberius, the Domus Tiberiana. We carried out the restoration of the frescoes of various rooms of the Republican area dating to around the I-II A. D. They were recently uncovered on the Farnese Bastion (the only surviving part of the surrounding walls, built for the Farnese Gardens on the Palatine Hill, ndt.). After the initial discovery, the vault of one of the rooms laid on the backfill after collapse; frescoes found in situ and on the vault appeared covered with a layer of light colored residue (scialbo). Later analysis and study revealed that these remnants dated to the Roman period. Our intervention encompassed the fresco decoration in various rooms, fragments of the collapsed vault and the pavements. This restoration is still ongoing.
