Medieval Hungary: Once more on “Botticelli in Esztergom”

Medieval Hungary: Once more on “Botticelli in Esztergom”

It has recently been stated by the Hungarian government that new financial sources have been provided for the completion of the restoration of the medieval castle complex in Esztergom, in particular that of the early Gothic castle chapel and the adjoining spaces, which are decorated with frescoes. The 14th century frescoes of the chapel as well as the late 15th century frescoes of the so-called ‘Studiolo’ have been under restoration since 2000 – an impossibly long time. With the new funds, the end maybe is in sight – the chapel will be accessible again as early as next Spring, while the frescoes of the Studiolo will be on view again in 2015.
