Photographer's Note

Castel Sant'Angelo, in Rome. This is a great example of how buildings in Rome are added to and changed in purpose over the centuries, making it one of the most fascinating cities in the world. The oldest part if the round tower, which was built in 135 AD as the tomb of the emperor Hadrian. Over the years the place was turned into a fortress with the addition of walls and it became the stronghold and guardian of Rome and the Vatican, which is nearby.
