Sistine Chapel prep gang



Rome Reports has been doing some great background videos. They manage to produce excellent short films which I suppose we might call "video-bites." I enjoyed this one of the Sistine Chapel being prepared for the Conclave. There will be a lot of passed-on knowledge among the people doing the nuts and bolts stuff. I can imagine there being a tough old chief ganger who knows the ropes keeping the newer lads in line to get everything exactly as it should be. "Right get that No2 box opened and be careful with it - it's the stove."

It must be great for them to be able to come home and tell their children what they were doing at work today - and in years to come, to tell their grandchildren.
