Tarquina: the Archaeological Museum

Between 1950 and 1960 the Lerici Foundation was active in Tarquinia discovering and rediscovering numerous painted tombs. Naturally, not all of these tombs were in optimal condition, so it was necessary to detach the paintings in order to keep them from being destroyed.

The technique adopted has been named “strappo” dell’ affresco (stripping of the fresco).
