In a city where people come from all over the world to feast their eyes on the most classic bits of art, hurried tourists and eager students have become quite commonplace. To keep its masterpieces viewable, Florence is constantly in a state of restoration under the watchful eyes of its many visitors. The very idea of neophyte students crossing the velvet rope and actually touching, let alone restoring, such amazing works seems, for most, nothing more than a remote possibility. Yet, for the students of SACI, Studio Art Centers International, restoration is a dynamic reality. And thanks to their painstaking efforts, the Conservatorio di Santa Maria degli Angioli has recently emerged as a bril-liant jewel of the Baroque.
