Vatican City / Christian Sinibaldi
In an increasingly turbulent world where the Pope himself has spoken about a third world war, religion continues to play a fundamental role. The Roman Catholic church has kept its political power well established through the centuries. Whilst Catholicism has always been at the centre of Italian society, decisions made in the Vatican influence the lives of 1.2 billion people around the world.
This sense of history, the magnificent spaces and the silence are elements that envelop the senses when walking around the Vatican. Tradition, hierarchy, spirituality and big events have always been at the heart of the Church.
