a roof built over the fresco as soon as possible. ''He sees how precarious it is, so he finds lumber, which was no easy feat,'' said Edsel.
''When you go walk through the palace Residenz, in the last room that you're in, there's a small shrine to John Skilton,'' he said.
FLORENCE'S BRIDGES, PISA'S CAMPOSANTO
In Italy, Florence's bridges today offer a look at cultural treasures that didn't survive the war. Except for the Ponte Vecchio - the city's famous covered bridge - other bridges over the Arno were destroyed by the Nazis as they made their retreat out of Italy in 1944. Pictures from the war show people walking across the rubble that was once the bridges. Edsel says the now rebuilt bridges are ''part of the altered legacy that we live with today.''
Monuments Man Deane Keller's work to restore the heavily damaged Camposanto building in Pisa meant so much to him that he was buried there after his 1992 death. During the war, frescos in the ancient cemetery located near the city's Leaning Tower were damaged from a fire during a fight for the city. Keller worked with a team to salvage and save what they could.
