DIVINITY IN LIGHT
The Dome of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri.
Divinity in Light is a glass dome created by Narcissus Quagliata over the entryway rotunda of the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri in Rome. It is a very unusual intervention of contemporary art in an ancient site. The building, the official State Basilica of the Italian Republic, was designed by Michelangelo in 1562 and built over the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian (298-306). The glass dome was commissioned in 1995 and inaugurated in the year 2000.
