The painting `Persia' by Martiros Saryan is being restored on
financing from the Armenian Ministry of Culture. The seven-member
group headed by Gayane Kazanti started the restoration works on June
25. Armenian specialists help Italian expert Luciano Billiot to
restore the canvas.

Conservation and restoration of Martiros Saryan's damaged paintings
started at Sayran Home-Museum in 2006. Special technologies and
equipments and corresponding professional experience was necessary to
do that hard work. The Ministry of Culture decided then to allocate
financial means to the pilot program.
