Mitwalli Mosque Restoration
Mahalla al-Kubra, Egypt
The renovation of this mosque, dating from the 15th century, was taken as an opportunity for training a group of workers in traditional techniques and materials. Repairs were made to damages caused by water infiltration and the use of oil-based paints, which had destroyed historical inscriptions.
