St Peters Square, Italy
The Piazza San Pedro is located in front of St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City, within Rome. Designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1556-1667) with a purpose of allowing large crowds to assemble before the Pope, who would appear either from the middle façade of the basilica or from a window off his apartment. The square is defined by massive Tuscan colonnades in a circle, at the center of which is erected the red granite Egyptian obelisk (from the 13th century BC, moved to Rome in 37 AD).
