Vertiginous footage of men working on the roof of the Basilica of St. John in Rome.
The great Basilica of St. John in Rome is featured. Various shots of the building. Men clamber around on the statues - they are either cleaning them or checking them for damage.
"A risky job for the watchful fellows who keep them intact far above the street." reads an intertitle. A man walks out on the arm of a statue. It looks precarious. C/U of him sitting on the statue's arm - Rome visible below. Low angle shot of him on the arm of the statue.
Very short segment - incomplete.
