The Restoration of the Resurrection of Lazarus

Rushed, hurried, dark in order to speed up the completion of the work, and a rather Gothic masterpiece, Caravaggio's work has been cleaned up and restored. This single canvas was stitched together out of five separate pieces--something I did not know could be done.

This is even more significant because of Italy's precarious financial situation. How do you find the money to restore these pieces of art? How does anyone find the funds anymore?
