Musei Vaticani

My favorite staircase can be found at the exit of the Vatican Museum (Musei Vaticani) in Vatican City. This is another one of my photos of the staircase from my visit to Italy a few years ago. I am looking forward to seeing this magnificent staircase again soon.


In the late 1920s Pope Pius XI commissioned sculptor Maraini to create this work of art and the and the “Marinelli” foundry with the casting of the bronze rail.
