Thursday, February 13 at 7:30pm. Westchester Italian Cultural Center, 1 Generoso Pope Pl, Tuckahoe, NY 10707. Click here to register online. Join us as we trace the fascinating development of the once open-air Vatican necropolis to the socially and religiously revolutionary construction of the Emperor Constantine’s Antica Basilica di San Pietro, a paradisiac temple which faithfully served Christendom for more than 1,200 years.

From the peak years of the Roman Empire until the Renaissance of the 1500s, the original Basilica of St. Peter on Vatican Hill was a little plot of Heaven on Earth. Please note that this lecture, previously advertised as starting at 7:00pm, has been changed to a start time of 7:30pm. Presented by Joseph Spedaliere. Members $20, Non-Members $30
