Art restoration. Display of some of the results of the Mantegna Project, Padua, Italy, to reconstruct the Mantegna frescoes. Original fragments are seen on a picture of one of the frescoes. The 15th- century frescoes by Andrea Mantegna were smashed into tiny fragments by the bombs that destroyed the Church of the Eremitani, Padua, Italy, on 11 March 1944 during World War II. The fragments ranged in size from a cigarette packet to a stamp. Over 80,000 fragments have been preserved, and the Mantegna Project, since 2001, has been using a computer program to help position scans of the fragments on black-and-white photographs of the frescoes. A display was opened in 2004. This is the S. Giacomo innanzi a Erode scene.
