Granite, bronze and skill restorers — in Tsarskoye Selo recreated terrace Luigi Rusca. A masterpiece of landscape architecture stood unrepaired over a hundred years.

His creation court architect with Italian roots has created half a century ago in an emphatically antique style. Just like in Italy, but instead of the traditional marble — granite Baltic. Stone structure with statues at the top of more than a year has been closed from the eyes of visitors to the park.

Terrace with a panoramic view of the Park, has found its austere, harmonious look. It is like a granite bastion in the middle of a green sea of flowers, shrubs and trees. A year ago, the picture was different: stone blocks out of alignment, and the entire wall menacingly leaned forward and could collapse.
Restorers dismantled granite blocks, cleaned them, and then laid back, paving between thick sheets of lead. Terrace younger, but it has retained its historic character. The scars of war, as a reminder of the terrible pages of history.

After the restoration is left to put in place the statue. Ancient heroes did in the studio Hamburger century and a half ago. They were created by electroforming. Therefore, even the crane was not required to restorers. Sculptures are hollow inside. Figure tall as a man, and weighs about a person, not a bronze statue. This sculpture, like a butterfly, flew on the balustrade gallery Luigi Rusca.
Updated terrace immediately attracted visitors to the park. 

Each new restoration — almost always brings discovery. This time under the stairs with stone slabs found two hidden rooms. Natalia Kudryavtseva, the chief architect of the State Museum "Tsarskoye Selo", "Unfortunately, nothing in the caves we found, both empty with no interesting finds, and even without uninteresting."
New finds and discoveries — according to scientists — is yet to come. Tsarskoye Selo is full of mysteries. And the last story — another proof.
