The AAR-Barbara Bini Collection of photographs on Rome consists of ca. 1000 images including contacts, photographic prints and duplicates. A selection from positives has been cataloged and corresponding negatives digitized.
The columns are gilded and divided into three spiraling sections. The spirals were designed to emulate the original Solomonic Columns used in the ancient basilica’s canopy and to carry the eye upward to the canopy.
