The double helix staircase
The double helix staircase shown in this photo is in use in the Vatican Museum for visitors to exit the museum and was designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932, inspired by the revolutionary spiral staircase designed by Donato Bramante in 1512 for Pope Julius II to connect the Belvedere Palace of Innocent VIII to the city.
