The papacy as guardian of Rome’s artistic heritage
In this photo we can see how it was around the Vatican before end of the XIX century when Italy was unified. The Vatican though became in 1929, when it was called the Vatican City. Pope Pius XI renovated the whole new born state. The papal galleries together with the Raphael’s rooms and the SISTINE CHAPEL, always considered as a giant jewel-case to visit, were opened to the public.
Like Gulliver in Gulliver’s travels, we can immagine to become very small to be able to enter the jewel-case to go and spy and discover… and switch our fantasy, feelings, emotions! The basilica of St. Peter will be waiting for us with its famous square ready to embrace us…to make us feel intimidated and comfortable at the same time
