Artist's Description

The river Tiber has emerald green water and is here seen
floating under Ponte Sant Angelo. To the left is Castel Sant Angelo.The Ponte Sant´ Angelo, Bridge of the Holy Angel, is adorned with sculptures of angels and leads up to the Castel Sant´ Angelo, on top of which there is a giant Saint Michael statue.
The Archangel appeared at this spot at the end of the 6th century, according to legend.
At the end of the 15th century the pope had to escape through the secret passage that leads from Saint Peter´s Church to the castle, not to be imprisoned by the French invaders.
The castle has been used for military ends and as a prison.
In Puchini´s opera “Tosca” the main character throws herself from these walls and commits suicide.

Shot May 8th, 2009 in Rome, Italy
