We took a quick weekend trip to Rome, taking the high speed Freccia Rossa train from Milan. On one of our aimless walks, just following distant monuments and signs, we passed the Piazza della Repubblica and the nearby Basilica. It is another monument that testifies to the genius of Michaelangelo. Luigi Vanvitelli was another contributing architect and Igor Mitoraj, a Polish sculptor, created the bronze doors in 2006. 

A sense of the Basilica's grandeur
