In June 2015, a conservation team led by Bettina Lucherini began to conserve extant plaster on the walls of the small temple in the back of the House of Diana. This restoration work will continue in the future, and we hope to provide students with the opportunity to learn conservation skills through a summer program, also led by Lucherini and her team.
