Vatican Museums organize exhibit for San Marino

Catholic World News - July 14, 2011

The Vatican Museums have assembled a special exhibit to be shown in the state museum of San Marino, as a follow-up to the visit by Pope Benedict XVI to that small European state. The exhibit will open there in August.

At a press conference in Rome on July 14, chaired by Antonio Paolucci, the director of the Vatican Museums, officials discussed the contents of the exhibit, which is entitled “The Man, the Face, the Mystery.” The artworks included, which stretch from antiquity to the current age, show how the human face is depicted in ways that offer a glimpse of the soul.
