Exhibit opens commemorating 80 years of Vatican City State

An extraordinary journey through time and history. In honor of the anniversary of the signing of the Lateran Pacts, a display has been set-up at the Braccio di Carlo Magno wing of Vatican City, entitled "1929-2009, Eighty years of the Vatican City State". Until May 10, visitors can enter free of charge and immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the times, full of changes for the small State. The itinerary develops in 5 sections: the first dedicated to the Vatican before 1929; the second to Pius XI, Achille Ratti, the craftsman of the settlement with Italy, great builder of the juridical structure and architect of the new State. Following that is a section on the Lateran Pacts, Treaty and Agreement
