The eighth hill of Rome has undergone a remarkable transformation: two thousand years of history have seen a simple tomb become the universal seat of Christianity. Housing a collection of manuscripts in its archives, the Vatican is a unique depository of history, while its palatial buildings, stunning examples of architecture in themselves, contain treasures of painting and sculpture. Today, it is science that takes us behind the legendary curtain of secrecy and inside the Vatican. Archaeologists explore the ancient catacombs and necropolis to uncover the city’s origins. Historians investigate Saint Peter’s Basilica, its destruction and reconstruction. Blending documentary and animation, this film highlights the close involvement of legendary artists in over 20 centuries of the Holy See’s rise to power.
