Carrier – The Art of the Invisible
Every year, approximately six million people visit the Sistine Chapel. In 2010, Carrier learned that human presence was degrading Michelangelo’s frescoes, and the only way to preserve them was to stop public visits. Working hand in hand with The Vatican, international teams from United Technologies and Carrier deployed a series of innovations to ensure the protection and safety of the museums’ artwork, spaces and visitors. In 2014, a state-of-the-art air management solution to preserve the artwork of the Sistine Chapel was unveiled and is nearly invisible to the Chapel’s 20,000 daily visitors.
