The St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City is the largest church in Roma, often called the center of Catholicism; it's the Pope's principal church, as most Papal ceremonies take place there: new Popes' announcements, opening and closure of Jubilees, and canonization of Saints.
The construction started in 1506 e ended in 1626; while the square was finished only in 1667.
Many architects and artists alternated in management of work, from Bramante, to Michelangelo who made plans of the inventive design of the dome, to Bernini who realized the square in front of the Basilica.
This Marlen writing instrument wants to pay homage to the power of human talent.
