The Restoration of the Tabernacle of the Linaioli by Beato Angelico. Restituzioni 2011 and ARPAI for a masterpiece. The initiative, which will be launched on 22 March 2011 – with inauguration on 21 March – and will terminate on 12 June, is centred on the display of the Tabernacle of the Linaioli by Beato Angelico, which returns to the museum after a lengthy and complex restoration carried out by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, with the financial support of A.R.P.A.I. and Banca Intesa San Paolo. Before replacing the tabernacle in its place in the Pilgrims’ Hospice, within the marble frame designed by Lorenzo Ghiberti, it too restored by the Opificio, it will be displayed to the public in Michelozzo’s monumental Library, a site that is particularly suited to enhance the perspective qualities of the painting and its majestic composition, enabling a complete and close-up vision. The predella will be displayed separately, again with a view to permitting a better and closer appreciation. Moreover, the public will also have the chance of conducting an interactive exploration of the entire work, via a multimedia station with touch-screen, thus enabling visitors to admire the splendid decorative details which are hard to appreciate with the naked eye.
