Conservation Approach

The conservation, restoration and modern intervention approach taken at St. Peter's has been based on the I.C.O.M.O.S. Venice Charter. Its objectives are to protect the authentic, antique built fabric of past societies and the promotion of confident yet respectful adaptation of monuments. The Venice Charter promotes the protection of all historic additions to a building as records of our society and encourages new additions in order to maintain historic buildings and environments as viable entities.
