The Mosaic of Alexander, from the House of the Faun at Pompeii, generally on display in the collection of the Mosaics, is currently under restoration. Indeed, diagnostic surveys carried out over the last few years have detected the nonoptimal conservation conditions of the masterpiece.
The first phase of the project is complete: while waiting for the upcoming second phase, the mosaic is still in situ, but it is covered by a cloth, with a high resolution photographic reproduction.
