197508 Italy Rome Assisi Ostia
A pilgrimage offered by my Mother to discover the marvels of Vatican, the Sixtine chapel, the magnificent views from the top of St Peter cupola on the large plaza and papal gardens, the main papal basilicas and numerous other landmarks of the Eternal Town as the great plazas not shown in this collage; We saw Pope Paul VI at the Vatican round plaza, a great moment! We went also to Ostia the beach of Rome and visited Assisi the town of St Francesco and of the Franciscan Order.UNESCO collectively designated the Franciscan structures of Assisi as a World Heritage Site in 2000.
The Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi (St. Francis). The Franciscan monastery, il Sacro Convento, and the lower and upper church (Italian: Basilica inferiore and Basilica superiore) of St Francis were begun immediately after his canonization in 1228, and completed in 1253. The lower church has frescoes by the late-medieval artists Cimabue and Giotto; the upper church houses frescoes of scenes in the life of St. Francis previously ascribed to Giotto, but now thought to be by artists of the circle of Pietro Cavallini from Rome. The Basilica was badly damaged by an earthquake on 26 September 1997, during which part of the vault collapsed, killing four people inside the church and carrying with it a fresco by Cimabue. The edifice was closed for two years for restoration. It is always an intense pleasure to be in Rome, a mother of art and civilisation
