This Easter, a series of 49 statues and 11 crosses depicting 14 scenes of the Way of the Cross are displayed along Via della Conciliazione, the broad, cobble-stoned street leading up to St. Peter’s Basilica. The collection of statues and crosses, produced by Domus Dei here in Italy, represent the world’s largest bronze Stations of the Cross in the world.

It took an impressive five years of work and ten tons of bronze to complete. The display runs from 13 March to 27 April 2011, after which they will be sent to Chile, where they were commissioned by the Fundacion Cruz del III Milenio for the Chilean port city Coquimbo.
