Gian Lorenzo Bernini's last masterpiece, the Salvator Mundi of 1679, is on display at Fiumicino Airport, T1. Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Salvator Mundi, from the church of San Sebastiano Fuori le Mura, a work from 1679 found in the Roman church only in 2001 is a marble bust that was intended for Queen Christina of Sweden, and upon her death was donated to Pope Innocent X.
The display of Bernini’s masterpiece is organized in conjunction with the Ministry of the Interior and is intended to celebrate the reopening of the new Terminal 1 boarding area, an infrastructure equipped with 22 gates, through which 6 million passengers travel annually. The Salvator Mundi will be visible to departing passengers. “The exhibition,” reads a note, "is part of the Leonardo da Vinci hub’s more general strategy of promoting territorial and domestic art and culture to Italian and foreign passengers".
