  1. I saw it at the World’s Fair New York City 1964

    • I saw it in my first snd only visit outside my native country, in March of 1984, in the Vatican, together with all the spendor of the Sistine Chapel, and the museum of the Vatican. It was a “anno sancto” and the otherwise walled in lateral gates into the San Pietro Basilica, were open fot one year! They were opened again 25 years later, by Pope John Paul II.
      Thank you fot reminding me of those long passed times…and yes: la Pieta…could make one weep in veneration, and owe, isn’t it?

  2. George, a classic classic. Thanks for this and all you wonderful, informative posts.
