“Year of Our Lord 1612. The facade of Saint Peter’s Basilica had just been completed, the dome had been in place for about twenty years already, but under the volts and behind the facade was something very ancient that was about to disappear for ever. It was the final act of a play started a century earlier.” The fascinating story of how the new Basilica was built and how the old Constantinian one disappeared, narrated by Piero Badaloni, directed by Luca Criscenti.
