Useful Info

Vatican is the smallest state in the world (0,44 kilometres) and is located on the hill ol the same name, between the hills Monte Mario and Monte Gianicolo. Here, where the Emperor Caligula had built a circus and Saint Peter was martyred in 67 AD, rises the most important basilica in the Christian world. The Vatican State was established during the Middle Ages and it grew to include most of central Italy Wiped out by the Unification of Italy in 1870, the state was re-established in 1929 and ratified by the Lateran Treaty between the Holy See and the Italian State. The Vatican State has its own police, diplomatic corps and army including the famous Swiss Guards. They were founded in 1505 by Julius II. Originally two hundred Swiss guards made up the Pope’s personal guard. Their evocative uniforms, the design attributed to Michelangelo, have remained unchanged for five centuries.

Sistine Chapel

The Sistine Chapel is named after its builder, Pope Sixtus iv (1471-1484). It was intended as the chapel for the Papal Palaces and its dimensions are said to be those of the temple of Solomon in Jerusalem. It was completed in 1481 and in the following two years was decorated by the foremost artists of the time, Perugino, Signorelli, Botticelli and Ghirlandaio. Paintings on the wall to the right of the altar represent scenes from the life of Moses, and those on the opposite wall are parallel scenes from the life of Christ. Above these are portraits of the early Popes by the same artists.

In 1508, Pope Julius 11 (1503-1513) commissioned Michelangelo, then thirty-three years of age, to paint the ceiling. Michelangelo refused on the grounds that he was a sculptor and not a painter, but the Pope insisted. Working with little assistance, Michelangelo completed the commission in four years. In 1534, Pope Paul III commissioned Michelangelo, then sixty-six years of age, to paint the Last Judgement above the main altar. Michelangelo completed the task in 1541. Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine Chapel is one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements.
