The Vittoria Alata returns to Brescia

The Vittoria Alata, one of the most extraordinary statues from the Roman era, returns to Brescia after two years of restoration work, carried out by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure of Florence, promoted by the Municipality of Brescia, the Brescia Musei Foundation, the Superintendency of Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape of the Provinces of Bergamo and Brescia, with the support of the Lombardy Region.

The statue will have a new location, in the eastern cell of the Capitolium, in a museum setting designed by Spanish architect Juan Navarro Baldeweg, conceived to enhance the material and formal characteristics of the work, with the collaboration of architect Camillo Botticini of Studio ARW during the design and construction phases.

The large bronze statue, symbol of the city of Brescia, is one of the most important Roman works in terms of composition, material and conservation and is one of the few excavated Roman bronzes to have survived.
