The Life of a Swiss Guard: A Private View

Sponsored by the New England Patrons of the Vatican Museums.
Hosted by the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, Boston, MA.

An exhibit featuring military paraphernalia and 80 photographs by Fabio Mantegna, provides a rare glimpse into the little understood daily lives of the Vatican Swiss Guard, dedicated to protecting the Pope. The Swiss Guard military paraphernalia and Mantegna’s photographs beautifully capture their individual personalities and collective identity forged by their oath to lay down their lives to defend the Pope, the Successor of Saint Peter.
