450 years since Michelangelo’s passing away. 20 years since Sistine Chapel’s complete restoration.
The Vatican commemorates these two events both occurring in 2014 introducing major innovations within one of the most admired works of art in the world: the Sistine Chapel.
A brand new lighting and air-conditioning system has been installed to guarantee the best visibility possible either in terms of hues and brightness of the frescoes.
