The Adoration of the Magi is one of the most controversial works of Leonardo da Vinci, which has undergone a laborious restoration process in which a large number of people have participated who have achieved optimal results and therefore, this work will be exhibited at the end of next year 2015.

The results of the arduous restoration of this painting were presented at the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence, where the laboratories in which this restoration work is being carried out are located.

Everyone is happy with the good work achieved, where in addition to having restored a priceless piece (and not only economic) have managed to discover much more about this genius of history, according to Cristina Acidini, superintendent of the Museums of the City of Florence.

The restoration allowed a more in-depth investigation on the interpretation of The Adoration of the Magi, allowing you to focus on certain details that have revealed many things that were not known. It has even been discovered that there are areas of the painting with lines that do not belong to Da Vinci.

It is believed that it was painted between the years 1482 and 1483 on behalf of the Augustinian monks of San Donato de Scopetto and he did it when it was not so important yet, for which he collected only 28 gold coins.

In order to complete the order on time, he asked his assistant for help Domenico Ghirlandaio and another contemporary painter to him, Filippino Lippi, but according to research, some of the traces found do not belong to Da Vinci or his assistants, which adds more mystery to this painting, considered one of his most important pictorial works.

Although the first stage of the restoration has already been completed, there is still time for it to return from the Opificio delle Pietre Dure to its usual place of residence, the Uffizi Galleria. After removing the large layer of dust that it had and other different jobs such as determining the state of conservation of the wooden support, now it is the turn to restore the support, something essential to provide solidity to the painting.

One of those responsible for the restoration team stated that Thanks to the intrinsic restoration work, it has been possible to know the technique used by the Italian genius and also to know what kind of materials he used mainly in his creations, something very important to understand the work of what is considered one of the most important men in history.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
