Restoring the Maderno Atrium
The Photographs of Mallio Falcioni
March 1, 2004 — September 6, 2004
In working with the Fabbrica di San Pietro, Italian-born photographer Mallio Falcioni documented the restoration works sponsored by the Knights of Columbus in the Maderno Atrium of the Basilica of St. Peter and in the Vatican Grottoes. These artistic photos documented the delicate and diligent restoration that returned the stuccos and the statues to their original splendor.
