"Michelangelo's Pieta" St. Peter's Basilica - Pietà Tip by codrutz

St. Peter's Basilica - Pietà, Rome: 15 reviews and 17 photos


This is the famous and most beautiful sculpture ever - Michelangelo's Pieta - sculpted between 1498 and 1499. I'm happy to take a good picture of the Pieta though behind a thick plexiglas for vandalism reasons (it is known that it withstand at least two attack, one of which damaged heavily the nose of the mother). The Pieta is in San Pietro Basilica, in the first chapel of the right nave.
