The Vatican Museums Tour continues with the visit inside the Sistine Chapel and its emblematic ceiling, absolute masterpiece of Michelangelo, divided into nine scenes inspired to the stories of Genesis and representing moments of the world creation like the separation of light from darkness, the creation of stars and the birth of Adam and Eve.
Among these moments represented on the chapel, the most significant are definitely the Creation of Adam, portraying God in the exact moment of the creation of Adam: their fingers seem to touch right when the man discovers life. Or the famous Universal Judgement on the altar. It took more than 4 years for its creation.
