Photographer's Note

Built up around to the 123 d.C. like sepulchre for Adrian emperor and its family, Castel Sant' Angel has an atypical destiny in the historical-artistic panorama of the understood one them. While all the other monuments of roman age come swept up, reduced to ruins or to hollow of materials of perusal recycle in new, modern buildings, the Castle - through a run of developments and transformations that seem to slip one in the other without continuity solution - accompanies in order nearly two thousand years the fates and the history of Rome. From funerario monument to fortified outpost, from dark and terrible jail to splendid rinascimentale dwelling that sees assets between its walls Michelangelo, from risorgimentale prison to museum, Castel Sant' Angel incarnates in the solemn spaces roman, in the powerful ones walls, the fastose knows frescoed them, the vicissitudes of the Eternal City where last and present legacies appear indissolublely.
