In many places inside the Pantheon, there are holes in the masonry. Often, these holes are for "brackets" that held marble in the past. The holes remind us of the many layers of the building.

In molti punti all'interno del Pantheon ci sono dei buchi nella muratura. Spesso questi fori sono per "staffe" che in passato contenevano il marmo. I buchi ci ricordano i molti strati dell'edificio.

Today, the piazza flows right to the portico and many people wander in to the Pantheon, even if it was not on their itinerary. There are no tickets or entrance fees. However, beginning during the corona pandemic, reservations are required on weekends. Many people "discover" the Pantheon by simply walking by it.

Many visitors are surprised to find out that the Pantheon is a Catholic church, the Basilica Santa Maria ad Martyres. At least some leave not knowing that, and some others are unsure. Here is a sculptural bust, located today in the sacristy of the Pantheon, of Pope Boniface IV, to whom tradition has accorded responsibility for procuring the Pantheon from the Eastern Roman Emperor and converting it into a church in the 600s, when the Pantheon was already nearly 500 years old.

The experience of narrowing your field of vision as you approach the doors, already apprehending a circular space just ahead with a different quality of light than the portico. What are you thinking, standing in the portico? How does the building stage your understanding?

Although there were almost 10 million visitors to the Pantheon in 2019, almost none of them would have seen key evidence used to figure out the Pantheon's age: brickstamps from the early second century. The brickstamps are in hidden areas of the Pantheon. Here is a brickstamp visible in the "back part" of the Pantheon closed to visitors.

This old electrical control panel was sitting in the back of the Pantheon, in a corridor off-limits to visitors. I'm not sure when it was last used. A reminder that modern technology has been integrated within this ancient structure for some time.
