[TG2 - Tommaso Ricci]: "Already the place of the initiative is eloquent, Palazzo Giustiniani, home to representing for the President of the Senate;
Here it was signed the Italian Constitution. in the Zuccari room and in the adjacent flows
the centuries-old history of Jubilees, inside full array of documents, prints, books,
mainly coming from the precious Library of Senate. It could not miss the beginning of
all: the Bull with which Pope Boniface VIII proclaimed in 1300 the first Jubilee; It comes from the Vatican
Library. The suggestion is deep, even because the document is placed in front of the
senatorial heirloom dust of Dante, whom that Pope sent to hell."
[Irene Fosi]: "Certainly among the initiatives for the Jubilee, this is truly a great
success and we also hope to have a response from the public. The merit
of this exhibition is also to retrace, very broadly diachronic sense, from Jubilee
of 1300 up to the Great Jubilee of 2000, a number of aspects and see the
concatenation, the permanence and changes. It is, in fact, from the Bull, of course
beginning of the Jubilee, the one that was the welcome, the travel; then we also see how the plate
of the medieval pilgrim or in the modern age it becomes then the pilgrim
document in the Jubilee of 1950."
[TG2 - Tommaso Ricci]: "The President Grasso
invited to the exhibition, free entry, all citizens of any religion
or cultural ancestry. This initiative, here, on a religious event, is not a short
circuit in church-state relations? "
[Andrea Riccardi]: "This religious event
is part of the Italian history and history of Rome. It is one of the constituent aspects
of the relationship between Rome, Italy and the world: the Jubilee; and it has a history of more than 700
years. Rome grows and more and more tries to welcome this dimension of pilgrims
who come to visit it. The Jubilee has a great story, and like all things that have
a great history, a living tradition, I think it has a great future. the Jubilee
has a future for believers, but a Jubilee is a great interest for everyone, because
it is an important part of the history, of Rome and of our world."
[TG2 - Tommaso Ricci]: "So many curiosities, prints depicting ancient Holy Doors
openings, projects ever made in San Peter, as the third arm of the colonnade,
commemorative medals minted throughout the centuries, come from the mint museum which will reopen soon.
[Silvana Balbi de Caro]: "The Mint Museum has presented and presents, in this exhibition,
an amazing collection of medals. They are small metal documents, which tell us
the history of Jubilees. A particular moment from this long history of Jubilees, that we
introduce extrapolating from a collection of the museum of the mint of Rome, made of mints
and medals. Unique in time, considering then the medal is a brainchild of Italian
genius, born in the mid-1400s; The medal did not exist before, it is a new kind,
however, the only one created by the Italian genius, by the great Pisanello. "
[TG2 - Tommaso Ricci]: "Believers and not, the history of Jubilees concerns us all, it is
the story we are made of. To know it, makes us all more aware."
