Not far from the Vatican, on the right bank of the Tiber, stands the tomb willed by Emperor Hadrian. A long bridge adorned with angel sculptures leads to the Castel Sant’Angelo, which within its walls holds the nuances of the Eternal City’s past and present. It was also a fortress, a dark and terrible prison and a splendid Renaissance residence. A building that has changed its face and function, closely following the transformations of the city.
