The Vatican Museums, a look into the past
One of the most visited museums in the world, it displays many incredible art pieces of historical value. The collection is so big you won’t be able to see all of it in one go, so here’s our suggestions for the pieces you don’t want to miss. The first is Cappella Sistina, made around 1511 and painted by Michelangelo: take some time to admire his work, starting from “La Creazione di Adamo”, the iconic scene where God brushes Adam’s hand.
Behind the altar you’ll find “Il Giudizio Universale”, made by Michelangelo 30 years after the “Creazione” and another iconic scene. Continue your visit around Galleria delle Carte Geografiche, a 120 meters long gallery filed with frescoes. Here you’ll see maps of Italy made in 1500, decorated with scenes of important religious event of that time.
If you want to see some sculptures, you should start with “Gruppo del Laoconte”, retrieved in Colle Oppio and now displayed in the Cortile Ottagonale. It is considered the first piece of this museum, displayed since its foundation in 1506. These are just some of the wonders of Musei Vaticani, come and discover the others by yourself!
MAXXI, the contemporary art museum
MAXXI is the first national museum dedicated to contemporary art. Founded in 2003 to become the benchmark of contemporary creativity, its spaces are designed by the architect Zaha Hadid, who won the project beating 273 architects from all over the world.
