Ian Hardwick - master fresco plasterer is applying new "giornata"
exterior buon fresco by iLia Anossov (fresco)
Since the area that can be painted while the plaster is still wet is relatively small - a few square feet, which is especially challenging outdoors, the artist has to work in sections that can be fully completed in one session. Those sections are called "giornata" (giorno - Italian for "day". After the day is finished the painting is trimmed to the "cut-line". The new plaster is mended and painted the next day.
