Jingle. Jangle. Gianni Crea [jee-aa-nee] [kray-aa] is the head key-keeper at the Vatican Museums in Italy.
Priceless artwork fills each room. Mr. Crea locks the doors at night. He unlocks them each morning.
Read More: Mr. Crea has worked in the Vatican Museums for 23 years. Perhaps the most famous room there is the Sistine Chapel. Paintings by the artist Michelangelo fill its ceiling. The key to the chapel is kept separate from the thousands of other keys. At the end of every day, that key goes into a new white envelope. The envelope is sealed, stamped, and locked inside its own wall safe. Jesus says, “I died and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.” (Revelation 1:18)
