The reproductions will give the beholders the impression of looking at the original masterpiece. Donations should be made to Digita Vaticana
, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for the Library’s digitization project. Beginning today, reproductions, certified by the Library, can be booked by making a donation, and Digita Vaticana will distribute this special gift to donors and supporters of the project in September.
