Public Approach Front
original east front

Pax / Italia / Tellus / Venus

Althought this is the best preserved of the 4 front relief panels, many parts have been restored, some reconstructed, as seen in the photos below. These seem to have been carried out mainly in the 16th century, or possibly earlier. Following current professional conservation practice, early reconstructions have been stabilized, re-secured, and integrated, while leaving visible differences to allow viewers to distinguished between original and later parts.
