Vatican Museums

A visit to the Vatican Museums is part of every trip to Rome. It is the most visited museum in Italy, although it does not appear in the charts because it is part of the Vatican State.

The Museums were created at the behest of Pope Julius II, the patron of Raphael and Michelangelo, artists who left a deep mark on the museum in the part of the papal dwellings.

Today, the Vatican Museums in Rome exhibit one of the most important museum collections on the planet. It begins with ancient art: stele, statues, hieroglyphic inscriptions, votive bronzes accompany the visitor on a dense and rich path that leads to rooms that house precious Mesopotamian and Assyrian finds.

It is important to visit the Pinacoteca where, in the space of some rooms, you can admire works by Perugino, Raphael, Leonardo, Bernini and Caravaggio.
It always ends with the famous Raphael Rooms where you can find, condensed into 4 rooms, some of the master’s undisputed masterpieces, including the School of Athens, a frescoed wall with the main exponents of Greek philosophy. The fresco features a self-portrait of Raphael, looking towards the viewer, and a portrait of Michelangelo, in the character of Heraclitus.

With a jump to the upper floor you reach the Sistine Chapel which is accessed from a small door.

Visit of the Vatican Museums

After the entrance you go up to the first floor with a sliding staircase that leads directly to the Egyptian Section, full of artifacts belonging to all periods of Egyptian history. Stelae, statues, hieroglyphic inscriptions, votive bronzes accompany the visitor on a dense and rich path that leads to halls containing precious Mesopotamian and Assyrian finds. Egyptian art is striking for the hieratic charm of the figures and the richness of the objects and the reliefs present in the Assyrian section are real sculptural masterpieces that adorned the doors and palaces of Assyrian lords and rulers such as Assurbanipal.

Giudizio UniversalePigna from the Temple of Isis of Campo Marzio (2nd century AD)

It is difficult to visit all the rooms that make up the Vatican museum itinerary in a single day. Not to be missed is the Pinacoteca where, in the space of some rooms, you can admire works by Perugino, Raphael, Leonardo and Bernini. A special mention to the great Caravaggio, undisputed master of the exasperated artistic expression of the Baroque style.

It is also worth going down to the famous Cortile della Pigna and taking a walk, if the day and time allow.

Going up to the second floor you reach the famous Raphael Rooms where you can find, condensed into 4 rooms, some of the master’s undisputed masterpieces including the School of Athens, a frescoed wall with the main exponents of Greek philosophy. The fresco features a self-portrait of Raphael, looking towards the viewer, and a portrait of Michelangelo, in the character of Heraclitus.

With a jump to the upper floor you reach the Sistine Chapel which is accessed from a small door. Now you can take pictures but they are only allowed without the use of flash. The gaze is attracted by the vault where, in an impeccable composition, it is lost between the mighty figures of the Sibyls and the Prophets and the evocations of the Universal Creation, the Creation of Man and the Expulsion from Eden.

The entire chapel then displays on the side walls a remarkable series of masterpieces depicting the Life of Christ signed by Rosselli, Perugino and Botticelli.

Giudizio UniversaleThe Stories of Genesis on the Ceiling (Michelangelo Buonarroti)

On the main wall is the Last Judgment by Michelangelo: in a centrifugal structure that has its origin in the Judging Christ, the figures of the resigned Virgin and the Saints of the Church are developed. Shocking for their expressive power are the figures of the angels of Revelation who sound the trumpets of judgment awaken the dead from their sleep. On the left the figures ascend to the sky taking back their bodies, on the right the demons drag down the damned where a Charon uses the oar to spur those condemned by the Judgment of Christ.

As everyone knows, the work caused a scandal for the exposure of naked bodies in the genitals and for this reason Daniele da Volterra was commissioned to cover the parts in question with panties. Responsible for the decision was the Vatican Master of Ceremonies Biagio da Cesena, who for this outrage was portrayed in the figure of Minos by the great, ironic, Michelangelo.

The spiral staircase leading out of the Vatican Museums is a delight for the eye, the last jewel of an unforgettable visit.

History of Vatican Museums

The Museums were created at the behest of Pope Julius II, the patron of Raphael and Michelangelo, artists who left a deep mark on the museum in the part of the papal dwellings.

Other Popes followed one another with the intention of enlarging the collection with new sections dedicated to different cultures: Clement XIV (1769-1774) and Pius VI (1775-1799), Pius VII (1800-1823) for the Classics, Gregory XVI (1831-1846) for the Etruscan and Egyptian sections, Pius IX (1846-1878) for the the Christian section.
