    The history of Via della Conciliazione is certainly interesting. Built by Benito Mussolini in the mid-1930s, it serves as one of Rome's few large throghfares, able to bring in large masses of people (read: tourists) straight to Piazza San Pietro.

    The original architect of the Piazza, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, intended that visitors get an eyeful as they left their crowded Medieval streets and entered the square. This effect, of course, has been diminished with the creation of Via della Conciliazione. And for this, it seems some of history is lost. However, the grandiosity and beauty of the street, particularly how it leads straight to the Vatican, is definitely a sight to see.

Description

Via della Conciliazione (in English, "Road of the Conciliation") is a street in the Borgo region of Rome, Italy. A relatively short street, it runs east and west from the Castel Sant'Angelo to St. Peter's Basilica. Via della Conciliazione is bordered by many religious and historical buildings, as well as quaint boutiques, souvenir shops and residences. Constructed between 1936 and 1950, this famous road was built to connect the Italian State with the Vatican State. Today, it remains the main route of access from the greater Italy to St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.
