Today, during the morning tour of the Summer Garden, the injured sculpture “PETRONYA PRIMA, WIFE OF EMPEROR VITELLIUS” was discovered by security officers

An unknown person painted eyes on the sculpture, perhaps the attacker thought it was a funny joke.

We want to remind you once again: the sculptures in the Summer Garden are expensive copies of genuine sculptures that preserve the composition of the Summer Garden. Cleaning marble, even artificial marble, is not an easy task.

Damaged copy, original sculpture “PETRONIA PRIMA, EMPEROR VITELLI’S WIFE”, A. Corralini workshop, Italy, 1717 is in the Mikhailovsky Castle of the Russian Museum.
