The history of the Vatican Museums

NICHOLAS V (1447-1455) AND ALEXANDER VI (1492-1503)


“The Vatican, the Museum of Museums,” not only houses the extensive collections of art, archaeology and ethno-anthropology gathered by the Popes over the centuries, but also contains some of the Apostolic Palace’s most extraordinary and artistically significant rooms.
Any history of the museums’ collections should rightly begin with the history of the rooms that the Popes over the ages chose as places of residence or private prayer and reflection. The first ones, in chronological order, are the Niccoline Chapel and the Borgia Apartment.

In the first year of his papacy, Pope Nicholas V (Parentucelli), one of the greatest humanists of the time, called on Fra Angelico to decorate the private chapel of his apartments in the Apostolic Palace with a cycle of frescoes dedicated to St Stephen and St Lawrence. Fra Angelico, a renowned artist as well as a Dominican friar, depicted scenes from the saints’ lives, drawn from the “Acts of the Apostles.”
The decorations, richly detailed and full of meaningful allusions, make the Niccoline Chapel a perfect example of the link between religious and humanistic thought in fifteenth-century painting.


A masterful restoration of Fra Angelico’s works was carried out in 1995 and 1996.

Nicholas V’s successor, Pope Alexander VI (Borgia) elected to live in the Apostolic Palace’s most exclusive wing, and commissioned its decoration by Bernardino di Betto, better known as Pinturicchio. In 1494 the work was complete, a stunning cycle of frescoes decorating the various interconnecting rooms. The rooms were left empty following the Pope’s death, and it was not until the end of the nineteenth century that the Borgia Apartmentwas open to the public.

Today most of Pope Alexander VI’s rooms are used to display the Collection of Contemporary Artinaugurated personally by Paul VI in 1973.  Read more in : http://www.museivaticani.va/content/museivaticani/en.html

Mandy
Barry Manilow

I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice,
shadows of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
how happy you made me oh Mandy

When you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
when you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
and I need you today, oh Mandy

I’m standing on the edge of time
I´ve Walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my mind
And nothing is rhyming, oh Mandy

When you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
when you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

Yesterday’s a dream I face the morning
Crying on the breeze
the pain is calling, oh Mandy

When you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
when you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

You came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
You kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you!
