The Sistine Chapel was built at the end of the 15th century by Giovanni Dolci. Its walls are frescoed with 12 paintings by Perugino, Pinturicchio, Botticelli, Signorelli and Ghirlandaio, and the greatest masterpiece being the frescoes of the vaults painted by Michelangelo for Pope Julius 11 between 1508 and 1512. The restoration of the ceiling between 1985 and 1989 revealed pure color, which caused doubts and incredulity which is still discussed.
