San Fantin, Crucifix, 2002


Thanks to the renewed generosity of the Fondation Jean-Barthélémy, Venice in Peril funded the restoration of an important 15th-century Tuscan polychrome wood crucifix from San Fantin, the church opposite the Fenice. The restoration was carried out in the laboratory of the Diocesan Museum at Sant' Apollonia. This crucifix was the one carried for centuries in front of condemned prisoners in their short walk from the dungeons to the place of execution between the two columns on the Piazzetta.
