1989. 26 years later accidental encounter with the first Benevolo edition

To get this photo in 1965, I sneakily placed my camera upon St. Peter's High Altar, lens upwards and in self-timer long-exposure mode.
This can't be replicated easily. I think a special permission is needed.
Because it's the view only the Pope has.

And one daring 20 years old student of Architecture had ;-)

Un sentito ringraziamento a Cecilia Mochi, uno dei proprietari dell'Agriturismo Ca' le Suore
che mi ha permesso di visitare lo studio del padre a Cagli dove a sorpresa ho trovato la prima edizione di questo libro.

I am piqued by the sheer geometry of the image and can imagine precisely what the eyes of that 20 year old architecture student saw...and why he risked life and limb to photograph this...bravo! (It was well worth that risk, wasn't it, Adal?)
