La salvezza di Clemente VII e dei suoi uomini fu resa possibile dal "Passetto", un corridoio segreto costruito da Alessandro VI sul muro che collegava il Vaticano e Castel SantAngelo.
Non c'è da meravigliarsi di tutto questo, perché l'esercito imperiale e, in particolare, i lanzichenecchi di Frundsberg erano animati da uno spirito di crociata antipapista.
Davanti a Castel Sant'Angelo, sotto gli occhi del Papa, fu imbastita una parodia di processione religiosa, con la quale si chiedeva che Clemente cedesse a Luterò vele e remi della "Navicella" di Pietro.

There remained a theoretical state of war between Italy and the Papal States (of which the Vatican was pretty well all that was left) until 1929 when Mussolini negotiated a highly popular Concordat that left the Vatican a sovereign state within the city of Rome, and made Rome undisputedly part of Italy.
Castel Santangelo, built as the tomb of the Emperor Hadrian but long converted into a fortress and prison, was taken by Italy as part of the spoils of war of the Papal States, as were all the various government buildings and many palaces in the city.

It didn't seem quite right just to gape at those structures and indulge in the conventional thrill of pondering the grandeur that was Greece and the glory that was Rome.
It's fine to marvel at an ancient civilization that was able to create the Coliseum or Castel Santangelo or the massive baths of Caracala or Diocletian, but a dedicated do-it-yourself home repair person always has to learn the basic secrets of construction.
Since the art historian was rather drunk when I posed the question, he didn't have an answer, and I wasn't terribly confident he'd return with one the next time I saw him.

The archangel revealed to the local bishop, St. Lawrence of Siponto, that he should erect a shrine there in honor of the archangel himself and all other angels.
Tradition says that when the march passed by the massive tomb of Emperor Hadrian, St. Michael appeared on its summit sheathing his sword, and the epidemic ceased.
Today Hadrian's fortified tomb is called the Castel SantAngelo - Castle of the Holy Angel - and for centuries it has been topped by a statue of St. Michael, dressed in the armor of a Roman soldier, returning sword to scabbard.

Ma a Roma non ebbe vita facile, dal temperamento facinoroso, focoso per carattere e ribelle, venne coinvolto in frequenti risse, anche a causa dei suoi contrasti con i membri dell’aristocrazia e della rivalità con gli arti artisti che gravitavano attorno alla Curia Romana.
Venne addirittura rinchiuso dentro Castel Santangelo, le cui mura aveva a suo tempo contribuito a difendere contro i lanzichenecchi, e fu protagonista di un rocambolesca fuga.
In quello stesso Castel S.Angelo sarà poi imprigionato dal successore di Clemente VII, Papa Paolo III, che lo sospettò di furto.
