The Vatican conserves perhaps one of the oldest and most renowned art collections. Collected by the papcy since the fifteenth century, thousands of works dating from 2050 BC to the present day are displayed within a one-way itinerary. Professor Enrico Bruschini, eminent Vatican expert and former curator to the American embassy in Rome, presents 100 key masterpieces in their itinerary order, and sets them in their art-historical context with his lively and engaging text.
