Uffizi fresco fixed
'Nicely back together' says museum chief20 February, 13:15
"The restoration achieved the expected results and the fresco is nicely back together," she said.
The 30cm-diameter piece, depicting an allegorical female figurine, came off when a worker stepped through the floor from the storey above. It did not hit anyone.
The ornamental fresco is not the work of any of the masters that have decorated the historic museum's halls, such as Michelangelo, Leonardo and Donatello.
