The Vatican has developed an app to help fund the restoration of the priceless works of art that adorn its halls; but restoration has its skeptics.
"Next time the the Sistine Chapel undergoes an upgrade, you can chip in using your smart phone, thanks to Patrum, a new app recently unveiled by the Vatican.
"The Vatican's well-known artistic treasures include such masterpieces as the Belvedere Torso, Laocoön and His Sons, and Raphael's Madonna of Foligno. With Patrum, the Patrons for the Arts of the Vatican Museums, are hoping the world-wide appreciation for such treasures will translate into lots and lots of crowdfunding."--Sarah Cascone, ArtnetNews
