The Basilica of St. Mary of the Altar of Heaven, Rome

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Aracheli (Italian: Santa Maria in Aracoeli) is the Church of the Virgin Mary, located on the top of Capitoline Hill in Rome. Due to its central location, it has always played an exceptional role in the life of medieval Rome. At the height of the Fourteenth-century Black Death, Cola di Rienzo folk stands triumphantly opened the 124-step monumental staircase leading to the temple. The author of the staircase project was Lorenzo Simone di Andreozzo.
