Angelo Turetta, ‘St.Peter's’, 1999, ILEX Gallery

St. Peter's Square, Rome, Italy.
A baroque game of stone, air, water and human beings immersed in the rarefied atmosphere of the last huge stage at the end of the millennium. A different and poetic way to narrate this jubilee year in the unique atmosphere of St. Peter's Square.
