Conservative restoration of the 300 sqm of mosaic carpet of the ancient Roman Basilica built in the 1st century AD was transformed in Christian Basilica during the 4th century. A very important operation we made was vegetables pest control using criogenic cleaning with dry ice. We also consolidated the foundations of the Roman Basilica and there we discovered remains of late medieval wall paintings.
