Week 95

Creativity

When, in 1932, the Vatican commissioned Giuseppe Momo

to build a staircase, the hierarchy of the time

would have not thought that his staircase…

would become one of the most photographed pieces

in the museum which today contains

nine miles of art works.

 

Once upon a time the staircase was used by every visitor

as they entered the Vatican Museum.

Nowadays the Spiral Staircase is missed

by many visitors to the museum.

We were fortunate to walk up the staircase

taking in magnificent views of Rome.

Definitely a creative work of its time.

And nearly one hundred years later

it still took your breath away.
