Growing up Catholic, I had always have the desire to see the Vatican.. .. 🇻🇦⛪️💂🏻‍♂️🙏🏼❤️🇮🇹 . .. The Vatican is the smallest country in the world (encircled by a 2 mile border with Italy) and is the heart of the Roman Catholic Church. .. On my 3rd day in Rome, I head out to the Vatican and joined 20,000 other people in line to go inside the Vatican Museum. Normally, you pay €16 entry fee but lucky for me, it was the last Sunday of the month, which is the museum’s “free admission day.” .. The Vatican Museum is massive with a total of 54 museums (including the Sistine Chapel with its ceiling decorated by Michelangelo).. containing the world’s largest collections of arts, archaeology and ethno-anthropology. .. It was definitely a dream to be wandering around the Vatican City. .. #vatican #vaticancity #vaticanmusuem #vaticano #cittadelvaticano #rome #italy #italia #thevatican #europe #eu #vaticanchapels #sistinechapel #museum #holy #romancatholic #catholic #katolika #catholicism #museumsaroundtheworld #arts #artifacts #stpetersbasilica #sanpietro #basillica #architecture #travelphotography #solotravel #explore @vatican_museums

#VaticanChapels [October 2018] The chapel designed by #CarlaJuaçaba is beautifully simple. Just four pieces of metal (the horizontal base piece of which is laid onto concrete sleepers as support). These steel rods have been formed to create two crosses: one upright and one laid flat. The horizontal cross has both a practical and a symbolic function, as it provides seating. The vertical cross is the focal point of the whole chapel. There is something I find unsettling about the proportions of the cross, where the intersection is low but the horizontal beam is comparatively wide and the main upright (above the intersection) appears perhaps a little too tall. Something to ponder further. But what is so noticeable, and so astoundingly beautiful, is the simple yet profound effect of the polished metal surfaces, and the reflections on those surfaces, of the surroundings. This chapel (more of a sculpture than a structure or building) represents a beacon of 'otherness' in amongst the woodland, and yet when we look at it we find ourselves looking not just at metal surfaces but at the very trees, grass and sky which surround us; and maybe we even discover ourselves. #HolySeePavilion #PadiglioneDellaSantaSede #VaticanPavilion #Biennale #VeniceBiennale #BiennaleVenezia #BiennaleDiVenezia #LaBiennaleDiVenezia #BiennaleArchitettura2018 #MostraInternazionaleDiArchitettura #WorldClassArchitecture #WoodlandChapel #FondazioneGiorgioCini #IsolaDiSanGiorgioMaggiore

Bonus #VaticanChapels [October 2018] Following on from today's earlier post, showcasing the chapel designed by #TerunobuFujimori, this view illustrates how the choice of wood for the chapel exterior relates so well to its surroundings - a #WoodlandChapel par excellence. #HolySeePavilion #PadiglioneDellaSantaSede #VaticanPavilion #Biennale #VeniceBiennale #BiennaleVenezia #BiennaleDiVenezia #LaBiennaleDiVenezia #BiennaleArchitettura2018 #MostraInternazionaleDiArchitettura #WorldClassArchitecture #FondazioneGiorgioCini #IsolaDiSanGiorgioMaggiore

#VaticanChapels [October 2018] The chapel designed by #TerunobuFujimori is perhaps the most user-friendly of the chapels in the whole exhibit. It has a roof, windows, doors, benches. You can imagine recognisable Christian devotions taking place within, both private prayer and corporate acts of worship. What's not clearly shown in these photos is how narrow the front door is; I could hardly fit through (but there is a side door). This is just one of the ways it does not lack for quirky details; like the (charcoal?) pieces dotted all over the end wall, and the interesting way that the timber columns at the front of the chapel have been hewn. A most pleasing and well-thought-through combination of form, function, materials, detailing etc. #HolySeePavilion #PadiglioneDellaSantaSede #VaticanPavilion #Biennale #VeniceBiennale #BiennaleVenezia #BiennaleDiVenezia #LaBiennaleDiVenezia #BiennaleArchitettura2018 #MostraInternazionaleDiArchitettura #WorldClassArchitecture #WoodlandChapel #FondazioneGiorgioCini #IsolaDiSanGiorgioMaggiore
