Photographer's Note

This Italian word means goodby but if you look at it from the point of etimology you can realize the word 'dio' (literally: god) embedded.

This photo was made in Aula Paolo IV, a huge modern event hall designed by Pier Luigi Nervi in 1960s in Citta del Vaticano.

I captured this silent moment after Papa Benedict XIV read out his 2nd encyclical letter Spe Salvi (literally: Saved by Hope) in a worldwide roman cathlic event (titled 'Civilization of Love') while thousands of people prayed rosario in different countries like Switzerland, Czech Republic, Romania, USA, Brasil, Australia, Belorus, Cuba, Italy)synchroniously with His Holiness.

In this image you can see the evacuated hall and the last bishop going home.

I hope you like it!
