We, the current and former Vatican Interns, are having/had a tremendous experience at the Vatican Museums learning about all the one-of-a-kind works and more importantly, how to preserve them. While the works of art in the Vatican Collection are ageless, time ticks away.
Our campaign is to go one piece at a time. In that spirit, for the first time the Vatican has undertaken a full apporach by committing to restore each and every statue, fountain and grotto in the Vatican Gardens over the next few years. We want to be a part of this effort.
We want to restore this fountain. As you can see from the picture, there is a picturesque view of the dome of St. Peter's Basilica and and the pathway around it is a series of beautiful sculpted bushes. If you visit the Vatican Gardens, you won't miss this fountain--it's one of the many highlights you will see.
We can stop the effects of time--together.
Help us to preserve these works for the next 2000 years.
