THE FRESCO FIASCO
The Fresco Fiasco is a documentary commissioned by Sky Arts as part of of their 'Failure Season'.
The show sets out to meet Cecilia Gimenez, the elderly Spanish lady who became famous overnight when her restoration of an old fresco of Jesus turned her into a global laughing stock. However, we soon learn that although she destroyed a painting she inadvertently saved a town.
The show is presented by Spanish film and TV actress Assumpta Serna who starred in Pedro Amoldovar's 'The Matador' and TV series 'The Borjas'.
