This book beautifully reproduces close-up views of Michelangelo's supreme work in new photography of the restored Sistine Chapel.

Every day at least 20,000 people, with peaks of 25,000 during the maximum visitors flow, visit the Sistine Chapel. They are people who come from all over the world, who speak different languages, who have various cultures, and who practice different faiths. In fact, the Sistine Chapel is the fatal attraction; it is the object of desire for the international population of the Museums and for the migrants of the so-called cultural tourism. Nevertheless, the Sistine Chapel is not a museum although it is part of a museum tour.

It is about a religious space; a consecrated Chapel. It is the real place of identity of the Roman Catholic Church, because right here the great liturgies are celebrated, and the Cardinals gather to elect the Pope. At the same time the Sistine is the synthesis of the Catholic theology.
