VATICAN RADIO AT THE FOUNDRY
The Holy Doors of St. Peter’s Basilica, cast by Ferdinando Marinelli’s family foundry in 1950, will be opened on December 8th by Pope Francis to commence the Jubilee year. In anticipation of this event, Vatican Radio sent seasoned reporter, Veronica Scarisbrick, to visit the foundry and report on the ancient craft behind the Holy Doors.
The Holy Door was cast by Fonderia Artistica Ferdinando Marinelli 65 years ago.
