Interview from the media

An interview from the Regional French Television was made at the Basilica of S. Urbain during the campaign of October 2002 in Troyes. The coordinator and LMRH staff illustrated to the public the aims of the VIDRIO project.

The 18 October 2002 a French newspaper “Libération Champagne”, wrote a long article about VIDRIO project, after an interview made to Ms Pallot-Frossard director of LRMH and responsible of the work in St. Urbain

The 21 October 2003 a French newspaper “Est Eclair”, wrote a long article about the end in St. Urbain at Troyes during the VIDRIO project, after an interview made to Dr. Adriana Bernardi coordinator of the project

The 29 January 2004 a German newspaper “Frankiske Nachrichten”, wrote a long article about the meeting held in Bronnbach for the international experience for the conservation of Stained Glass in some European Monuments

On March 10th, 2005, an Italian newspaper, “Il Gazzettino”, published an article about the settlement of the Vidrio Project and the Meeting held In Venice, reporting interviews to Dr. A. Bernardi and Dr. M.Verità (see attached copy of the article)
