This art work was designed and realized by the Italian artist Tullio Pericoli with the technical partnership of Lino Reduzzi.

According to the most ancient method of the fresco graffito, Studio Reduzzi realized an appropriate preparation of the masonry support. Then the artist engraved the surface fallowing his original sketch and bringing to light the underlying brown plaster that outlines the composition. The art work was finally treated in order to permit its best preservation.
