1937

Roman Artist Gonippo Raggi completes a major enhancement project, the adorning of the Liberal Arts Rotunda interior. The entire project, with marble floors and pillars, murals and dome decorations, is accomplished for the amazingly modest cost of $68,387. It transforms the bare walls and dome, steel columns, the mezzanine and floor into a Marywood College mission statement in marble and murals. Raggi's murals evoke the history and principles of Christian education in a singularly American context with deserved recognition of the significant contribution of the I.H.M. Sisters. A graduate of Rome's eminent School of Art, Professor Raggi earned the honors of popes and kings for his illumination of one hundred cathedrals, basilicas, and churches across Europe and North and South America.
