Last week a friend met in Sapporo came to visit me here in Rome and we decided to go on a little tour of Italy: in 7 days, we visited Roma, Casale Monferrato, Maranello, Venice, Naples and the Vatican.
It might sound a bit hardcore, but believe me, it was worth the effort!
Along with a gigantic pack of great memories, I was left with a stunning 2000+ photos to select and post process...
And instead of starting from the beginning, I went straight to work on this one: from the moment I took it, it simply wouldn't leave my head.
I remember going to visit the Vatican for the fist time when I was 8, with my parents, and being completely blown away by this stairway... Well, the time where I could go back there and take my chances at representing it finally came!
For your knowledge, this is the core stairway inside the Vatican Museums, right behind the gigantic St. Peter's Church.
More to come soon...
