Beginning in the late 1990s with support from American Express, WMF took part in a comprehensive conservation program at the Temple of Hercules and Temple of Portunus in Rome, Italy. Restoration work at both temples included façade conservation, biocide cleaning, stabilization, and conservation of its eroding marble surfaces.

Located in the Forum Boarium, these temples are some of ancient Rome’s oldest structures. Today they are an educational resource for those interested in this ancient commercial center.

Pictured is Temple of Hercules in the foreground, and Temple of Portunus in the background.

It's been more than 40 years since a young public school administrator walked into Cleveland's empty State Theatre, saw its potential, and embarked on what became the world’s largest theater restoration project -- PlayhouseSquare. And that's just the *start* of Ray Shepardson's story, which now includes 35 restored theaters nationwide:

Wood Frame Bricked Over in Bed Stuy

We’re sad to report that the wood frame at 770 MacDonough has been covered over in brick veneer. We have a soft spot for these old wood frames, and this one appeared to be in near-perfect original condition — a real rarity around these parts.
