Sergent Roncalli (The young Pope John XXIII)

Look inside the project

Sergent Roncalli
During the World War I a young Sergent gave his support as chaplain assisting ingjuied soldiers.
Years after that dramatic experience that young sergent became one of the most beloved Pope: Pope John XXIII.
 
The Pope John Foundation contacted me for this project. It was a very great surprise for the historic importance and becouse we are all from the same city (The Pope, The Foundation and I we are all from Bergamo in italy).
 
They gave me all the freedom to re-invent some historic images from about 100 years ago.
 
This is the final work.
 
 
The project was disclosured the 15th May 2014 into a special event for the Bergamo Culture Festival.
 
Thanks for watching
Antonio
