Fazzini Museum Wheelchair Accessible Tours

Pericle Fazzini sculptor, a native of Grottammare on the eastern Italian coast, began his career as an exponent of the Roman school of the 1930's.

His early wooden pieces, characterized by their simple style, led to the starker later figures, which he fashioned almost exclusively in metal, particularly bronze.

The Vatican commissioned Mr. Fazzini to provide a work for its modern auditorium.

The result was ''The Resurrection'' a statue depicting Jesus rising from a nuclear bomb crater.

The Resurrection is molded in red bronze and yellow brass and measures 66 feet by 23 feet by 10 feet.

It was unveiled by Pope Paul VI in 1977 and dominates the stage of the Vatican hall where the pope's general audiences are held.

Among Mr. Pericle Fazzini's works is the bronze ''Sybil'' at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and a giant sculpture of a sea shell commissioned by the City of Dallas.
