San'Angelo the original, the name Santo Angelo honors Michael, the Archangel and his apparition described by Pope Gregory I in 590 AD in one of the legends. The legend holds that Pope Gregory I would have seen Michael, the Archangel guarding his sword, a sign of forgiveness to the sins of the City of Rome. The site of the vision was then named San'Angelo Castle as it is known up to today. The Castle is located at a short distance from the Vatican City and it was celebrated in the film "Angels & Demons," based on the novel by author Dan Brown.
To celebrate this apparition, a statue of The Archangel Michael, originally a marble Raffaello da Montelupo, and since 1753, was settled atop the building. The same was later replaced by a bronze version by Pierre van Verschaffelt, originally sketched by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
