Restorations are complete on three beautiful crucifixes! In 2007, Carlo and Lucia Barocchi donated three exquisite crosses to Pope Benedict XVI. One was a 14th century copper crucifix of the “archaic” style, a second in gilded silver was from the 17th century and a third (the oldest) dates back to the late middle ages. After being put in our Wishbook a restoration of these pieces was supported by the Michigan Chapter. The spectacular final results are due to their patronage and the efforts of our wonderful restorers.
