Description

Via della Conciliazione was built by Mussolini in 1936 and connects Sant'Angelo Castle to St Peter's Basilica. In order to make this road accurately according to fascist architect Piacentini's designs, a large portion of Borgo Pio was sacrificed, which is still a source of much debate even today. The intent was to create a pathway with a beautiful view of St Peter's Basilica, and that was exactly the result!
