Photographer's Note

The Vatican City, independent sovereign state since 1929 (Lateran Pacts), rises on the site where St. Peter was martyred and buried.
The Basilica of St. Peterís offers one of the most impressive experiences of architectural space available anywhere.

PPhotographs cannot convey the impact on the visitor of the vastness of the structure, of the splendid decorations and works of art it contains.
The church is also famous for its almost total absence of paintings, substituted with mosaics by the Vatican School.

In this pic you can see the rapresentation of Holy Gost, above the main altar, in a fantastic and really suggestive glass wall in the heart of the basilica.
