The Sistine Chapel is a renowned chapel located within Vatican City, the smallest independent state in the world and the spiritual center of the Roman Catholic Church. The chapel is named after Pope Sixtus IV, who commissioned its construction in the late 15th century. It serves as a significant site for various religious ceremonies, including papal conclaves where cardinals gather to elect a new pope.
The Sistine Chapel is perhaps most famous for its stunning frescoes that adorn the interior, most notably the ceiling painted by the Italian artist Michelangelo. The ceiling’s centerpiece is the iconic “Creation of Adam,” a depiction of the Biblical story of God giving life to Adam, which has become one of the most recognizable images in art history.
Michelangelo’s work on the Sistine Chapel ceiling took approximately four years to complete, from 1508 to 1512. The frescoes showcase various scenes from the Bible, including stories from Genesis and other Old Testament narratives.
In addition to Michelangelo’s work, the chapel features other notable artworks by Renaissance masters like Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio, and others. The Last Judgment, another masterpiece by Michelangelo, can be found on the chapel’s altar wall, painted later in his life during the mid-16th century.
The Sistine Chapel is not only a place of religious significance but also a testament to the artistic and cultural achievements of the Renaissance period. Its intricate and breathtaking artwork continues to attract millions of visitors from around the world each year, making it one of the most visited cultural and historical landmarks globally.
Imagine yourself standing beneath the awe-inspiring frescoes of the Sistine Chapel, gazing up at Michelangelo’s divine masterpieces, and feeling the pulse of history, art, and culture all around you.
Now imagine doing all of this without ever leaving the Philippines, without spending a fortune on a trip to Rome. It’s not a dream. It’s a reality brought to life by ATIN Global Inc. in partnership with Globe.
Through the magic of meticulous research and exacting reproductions, you can finally have the opportunity to experience “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” right at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City until September 30, 2023.
“This exhibition is more than an artistic experience. It’s a symbol of inclusivity and inspiration. We are opening doors, making what was once a distant dream in Rome a tangible reality here in the Philippines, regardless of their means.”Yoly Crisanto, Globe Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer
This globally successful multi-sensory exhibit is more than a mere display of art. It’s a tangible journey to the Renaissance era, a virtual teleportation to the Vatican City. It’s an experience that transcends mere viewing, inviting you into Michelangelo’s world without the need for a passport.
The exhibition greets audiences with ambient Renaissance music, the subtle scents of patchouli, sandalwood, and frankincense, and even offers a curated Caffe Michelangelo for a unique dining experience. It’s a complete sensory delight that transports you back in time.
“We brought this exhibit to the Philippines to make world-class art more accessible to Filipinos. We know how close Filipinos’ hearts are to imagery related to the Catholic Church, and we hope to give them the Sistine Chapel experience right here at home,”Sabrina Co, Founder and Creative Director of ATIN Global Inc.
The exhibition is also about giving back. A portion of the proceeds earned from every ticket sale will benefit The Hapag Movement, a Globe-led initiative that brings together partners and mobilization partners such as Ayala Foundation, Caritas Philippines, Tzu Chi Philippines, World Vision and Scholars of Sustenance Philippines, to fight involuntary hunger. Your ticket to the Sistine Chapel is also a ticket to making a difference.
The exhibition also promises to be a fun-filled and Instagrammable affair for all ages. Unlike the actual Sistine Chapel, where you cannot take photographs, here, you are encouraged to capture memories, explore photobooths, and even engage in interactive art rooms.
No longer is the Sistine Chapel a distant dream only accessible to those who can afford to travel to Rome. It’s right here, within reach of every Filipino. So why wait? Book your tickets now and experience the genius of “Il Divino” without leaving the shores of the Philippines. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it’s waiting for you.
