Florence Floods, Italy, 1966

Florence Floods, Italy, 1966 in which 100 died and many cultural artefacts, books, paintings and sculptures were damaged. It was the worst flood for five hundred years. Late evening in the Museum of Santa Croce. On 18 foot scaffolding by the light of torches, students supervised by a restorer, stick tissue paper on to a painting to avoid further loss of colour. - Romano Cagnoni - 1966-11-11
