Saving the building's core
In August 2010, the New Palace was shrouded in tarps: Construction had begun. The 18th-century roof truss, which was altered several times and had been damaged by water, was in very bad condition. The Appiani fresco in the ceremonial hall also had to be saved. The facade facing the lake was improved with extensive masonry and stucco repairs, and the central pediment crest was restored. Finally, the windows were repaired and the stucco and masonry were repainted.
