The Papal Basilica of Saint Peter (Latin: Basilica Sancti Petri), officially known in Italian as the Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vaticano and commonly known as St. Peter's Basilica, is a Late Renaissance church located within the Vatican City. St. Peter's Basilica has the largest interior of any Christian church in the world, holding 60,000 people. It is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic sites. It has been described as "holding a unique position in the Christian world" and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom"... see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Peter%27s_Basilica ===== Regarding the complexity, the current model has the following characteristics: [Edges=38,000;Faces=14,000;Materials=114] --- In Bernini's Colonnade the model implements the "simplified type columns" as described on my blog in the article http://arrigosilva.blogspot.com/2010/10/berniniscolonnade.html --- I want to express a special thank to Davide Campeggiani who provided me with valuable suggestions and advice ===== The model and all related works are copyrighted by the author ===== You can see an animation of this model at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0NHLjQXFFw --- Other information and notes about the model you can see at http://arrigosilva.blogspot.com #basilica #cathedral #cattedrale #chiesa #church #cupola #dome #eglise #iglesia #kirche #Roma #Rome #Saint_Peter #San_Pietro #Vatican #Vaticano
