3. Camillo Tarozzi, a chief art restorer from Bologna, who i visited in his lovely studio, told me what effort is put into the restoration. He explained in depth the technique used for the restoration and the time invested for the project. The most interesting part i came to discover in the conversation with Camillio is, that today, thanks to the “story” around the exhibition and the reaction of Blu, the whole city of Bologna is talking about Urban Art.
