Castel S. Angelo fu edificato intorno al 123 d.C. come sepolcro per l'imperatore Adriano e la sua famiglia. Nel corso degli anni il Castello fu trasformato da monumento funerario ad avamposto fortificato,a terribile carcere, a dimora rinascimentale (che vede attivo tra le sue mura Michelangelo), a museo.

The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as the Castel Sant'Angelo, was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress, prison and castle, and is now a museum.
