Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise panels - restoration status update?

Jump to last reply

I will be in Florence in a few weeks (yay!), and I'm wondering about the status of the restoration of the original panels of the Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise doors. In February, Rick Steves had an article about Italy in the newspaper, and this bit caught my eye

"At Florence's Duomo Museum, the restoration of the original panels of Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise is wrapping up. The famous panels are being reinserted in their door frames and should be back on display for a formal inauguration on June 24, 2012, the feast day of Florence's patron saint, John the Baptist."

Does anyone know if they are on schedule for this?
