  • In the middle of Tiberina Island just a few meters from the church of St. Bartholomew, an interested monument / spire dedicated to Pope Pius ninth. Impossible not to see it being in a passing area.

  • They are in front of the church of St. Bartholomew, on the island of Tiberina, where stands the marble spire topped by the cusp on which stands a cross. It is here at the behest of Pius IX, who intended to perpetuate the memory of the first Vatican Council. On the four sides of the box there are also niches, which are home to the statues of saints Bartholomeves, Pauline of Nola, John of God and Francis of Assisi. Here the Christian memory recalls the so-called "infamous column" on which, on the day of the saint's feast, a list was posted with the names of the unbelievers, those who had not communicated at Easter. The memories are those that history passes on to us, of the satire and ferocious criticism of people of the people, more or less known. On all the poet of Rome Gioacchino Belli and the painter of Trastevere Bartolomeo Pinelli, with a fiery character and dissolute life, suspected of Jacobin sympathies. But that's another story.
