Scaueni Monastery

Located in Valcea County, Scaueni Church was part of a large monastic complex. It was built in the later part of the 18th Century. The interior of the church was decorated with Post Bizantine style figurative and decorative fresco paintings.

The team leader for this project was Ion Neagoe.

Restoration consisted of:

  • Consolidation of the lime plaster support layers that have become detached from the masonry walls and filling the missing areas of plaster support with lime plaster compound – similar in composition with the original one
  • Consolidation of flaking and delaminating paint layer
  • Cleaning
  • Inpainting (reintegrating the image) using reversible painting materials compatible with fresco painting
