    Photo portfolio of Angelo Ferraris on 500px. The Papal Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican (Latin: Basilica Sancti Petri), officially known in Italian as Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vaticano and commonly known as Saint Peter's Basilica, is a Late Renaissance church located within Vatican City. Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and remains one of the largest churches in the world. While it is neither the mother church of the Roman Catholic Church nor the cathedral of the Bishop of Rome, Saint Peter's is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic sites. It has been described as "holding a unique position in the Christian world"[3] and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom". In Roman Catholic tradition, the basilica is the burial site of its namesake Saint Peter, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and, also according to tradition, the first Bishop of Rome and therefore first in the line of the papal succession. Tradition and some historical evidence hold that Saint Peter's tomb is directly below the altar of the basilica. For this reason, many Popes have been interred at St Peter's since the Early Christian period. There has been a church on this site since the 4th century. Construction of the present basilica, over the old Constantinian basilica, began on 18 April 1506 and was completed on 18 November 1626

  • Duomo di Pienza (SI)

    Photo portfolio of Giuseppe Peppoloni on 500px. Duomo - Cattedrale Santa Maria Assunta di Pienza (SI) Pur essendo uno dei monumenti più importanti del Rinascimento italiano, per alcuni particolari come il tetto a due spioventi e l'occhio centrale ricorda le chiese gotiche francescane, ma anche le Hallenkirchen tedesche che Pio II aveva visto nei suoi numerosi viaggi (soprattutto per l'estrema luminosità delle vetrate); l’insieme è però rinascimentale e risente dell'influenza di Leon Battista Alberti, oggi ritenuto il reale ispiratore di Pienza e del Duomo. La facciata tripartita in travertino fu progettata dal Rossellino. Quattro paraste la dividono in tre zone corrispondenti alle navate interne. Una cornice marcapiano divide la facciata in due zone; in quella inferiore ci sono le tre porte d'ingresso, in quella superiore tre arconi sorretti da colonne. Sotto gli archi laterali sono state create nicchie di reminiscenza classica, in quello centrale si apre un oculo. Sul timpano della facciata domina lo stemma con l'emblema della Santa Sede di Pio II Piccolomini. Le pareti esterne della chiesa e l'abside recano finestre gotiche che permettono una grande e suggestiva luminosità interna. Il campanile molto slanciato fu danneggiato dal terremoto del 1545 e ripristinato nel 1570. Duomo - Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta di Pienza (SI) Despite being one of the most important monuments of the Italian Renaissance, for some features such as gabled roof and central eye recalls the Gothic Franciscan church, but also Hallenkirchen German Pius II had seen in his travels (especially for 'extreme brightness of the windows), the set is, however, Renaissance and influenced by Leon Battista Alberti, now considered the real inspirer of Pienza and the Duomo. The tripartite façade in travertine was designed by Rossellino. Four pilasters divide it into three areas corresponding to the inner aisles. A string-course divides the facade into two areas, at the bottom there are three doors in the upper three arches supported by columns. Under the side arches were created niches of classical reminiscence, in the middle opens an oculus. On the gable of the facade dominates the emblem with the emblem of the Holy See of Pius II Piccolomini. The outer walls of the church and the apse go Gothic windows that allow a large and impressive interior lighting. The very slender bell tower was damaged by an earthquake in 1545 and restored in 1570.
