Photographer's Note

I took this photo in the night to add some more atmosphere to this millenary magic place , the italo-byzantine Monastery of St. Mary of Grottaferrata, 20 kil. from Rome, depending immediately on the Holy See, was founded by St. Nilus of Rossano on 1004 fifty years before the division between the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Church.
