When it came to building churches in the pre-modern era, size mattered. St Peter’s in Rome is still amongst the largest churches in the world but in these days of modern, monumental architecture its original impact can be reduced. Maurizio Rellini’s overhead view of St Peter’s Square restores this sense of scale, using differential focus to give the scene the look of a model village in which the human figures are reduced to mere dots in the frame.
