The Life of a Swiss Guard: A Private View
Armory 4th Floor, Faneuil Hall
Daily 9 AM - 3 PM
FREE TO THE PUBLIC
Photographer Fabio Mantegna has captured on film an intimate view of the life of the men who make up the Swiss Guard. Over a period of several weeks, he was fully immersed in the daily lives of these men, dedicated to protecting the Supreme Pontiff. From his vantage point as an insider to this highly visible, yet scarcely understood military corps, emerges through his photographic art a rare insight into their collective identity, but also their individual personality, all of which is sealed by their oath to lay down their lives, if necessary, in defense of the Bishop of Rome, the Successor of Saint Peter.
