The latest edition of the official Vatican Museums 2019 weekly diary is dedicated to the complex of theirs collections. We enter the diary through the great open door in the Vatican walls. The weeks in the year then follow the itinerary of the visitor: we encounter the Egyptian sarcophagi, then the Apoxyomenos, the celebrated Torso, the Apollo of the Belvedere, the Laocoon, the Pio Clementine Museum, the Braccio Nuovo, then continuing with the Mars of Todi, the amphora of Exekias, and the Hall of the Roman Chariot. And then, the Gallery of the Tapestries, the incredible Gallery of Geographic Maps, then Raphael in the Rooms of Julius II and Pinturicchio in the Apartment of Pope Alexander VI Borgia. We then arrive in the Sistine Chapel, the universal icon of the Vatican Museums but also of all Western art. Refined and encased in an elegant colour slipcase, the Diary 2019 is published by Edizioni Musei Vaticani, with entirely bilingual texts in Italian and English. The introduction is by Barbara Jatta, Director of the Vatican Museums. A beautiful and great quality Christmas gift, useful all year round, in a limited collector's edition.
