The façade of the San Lawrenz church in Gozo, is currently undergoing restoration work. A group of Italian experts visited San Lawrenz in July to study and report on the type or restoration work that was needed for the façade.
The San Lawrenz Local Council said that once the report was received and approved, work on the chuch got underway immediately, carried out by an Italian team.. The Project Architect is Ivana Farrugia,
The Council said that works are going to schedule and as agreed with the European Union. At the same time the last preparations are taking place for the restoration works on the Cali paintings and the church organ, which are due to start soon. Restoration work on the church bells are also now underway.
The Local Council has also began its preparations for the restoration of the niche of Our Lady of Sorrows which is situated on the façade of the San Lawrenz Parish Centre. This restoration has been made possible thanks to the Local Councils’ application with the Parliamentary Secretariat of Public Consultation.
These projects all form part of the San Lawrenz Local Council’s Locality regeneration programme
