The exhibition featured a crucifix restored over a three-year period by SACI students under the supervision of SACI Conservation Area Head Dr. Roberta Lapucci. Roberta, who wrote an article for the exhibition catalogue, and SACI Conservation Teaching Assistant Philippa Norton (SACI Alumna, 2009-2010) represented SACI at the reception, during which the school was officially thanked and the project cited as an example of how collaboration between Italians and those from other countries aids Italy in the preservation of its unique cultural heritage.
Shortly after this event, there was an unveiling at the Santa Maria a Campi Church in Campi Bisenzio of La Visitazione, a large altar painting also restored by SACI students over a three-year period.
