    The restoration is finished. We have set up a long term maintenance plan, with restoration specialists reviewing the work every six months and doing any necessary follow-up work.

In July Mr. & Mrs. Walter S. Arnold from AFIMS met with Phillip T Reeker, U.S. Consul General in Italy, and Anna Maria Saiano, U.S. Consular Agent for Genoa. We discussed the restoration of the Fletcher Memorial and presented Mr. Reeker with a copy of our book “Staglieno – The Art of the Marble Carver”.
