A Potain Igo 50 self-erecting crane is repairing more than 4,000 square meters of the damaged roof on the Sant’Orsola, a 14th Century ex-monastery in Florence, Italy, that is thought to be the final resting place of Lisa Gherardini, better known as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

It has been derelict for more than 30 years; however, the city has renewed its efforts to renovate the historic building and open it up to the public. 

The city enlisted the help of local Potain dealer Tognaccini Noleggi, which deployed an Igo 50 to load and unload 12 ballasts, weighing in at around 24 t, which form the first phase of the roof renovation. 

The project is scheduled for completion in 2023 and is expected to become the centre of community life in Florence.
