Shroud Chapel to Reopen in March 2014

Guarini’s Chapel of the Holy Shroud, Turin (1667-1694), is scheduled to reopen in March 2014, according to a press statement made last month by Mario Turetta, director of Beni Culturali e Paesaggistici del Piemonte. The chapel has been closed since a devastating fire in April 1997.
