Photographer's Note

La notte tra il 13 e 14 marzo del 1996, croll la cupola del Duomo e con essa parte della navata centrale, quella laterale destra con il transetto e i pilastri.
Dopo sette anni di lavoro fu ridata vita al monumento ferito riportandolo al suo antico splendore.
Una ricostruzione difficile, impegnativa in cui sono state unite le antiche tecniche costruttive alle pi moderne tecnologie sviluppate nel campo dellingegneria sismica.
Le parti recuperate dal crollo sono state mantenute e integrate nella nuova costruzione.

-------------------------------------------

The night between 13 and 14 March of 1996, the dome of the Cathedral collapsed and with it it departs some central aisle, that side right with the transetto and the pillars.
After seven years of job life has been given back to the "wounded monument" and it has been brought to its ancient shine.
A difficult reconstruction, binding in which have been united the ancient constructive techniques to the most modern technologies developed in the field of the seismic engineering.
The parts recovered by the collapse have been maintained and integrated in the new construction.
