The “La Creazione” (The Creation) fresco by Michelangelo on the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel is pictured during a press preview Friday, Dec. 10, 1999. Beginning with Michelangelo on the ceiling nearly 20 years ago and wrapping up with Botticelli on the sidewalls, restorers have now brightened all the masterpieces in the Sistine Chapel, promising the returned-to-life colors should keep for decades, maybe even a century or more. The Pope will preside over a service celebrating the restoration Saturday, Dec. 11. (AP Photo/Plinio Lepri)
