Pius XII's WWII monument: Ab Angelis Defensa A.D. 1944...

Notice the iron shields?

For nine months the Nazis occupied Rome.

During that time the Pope and others had this shrine constructed on the Vatican wall for all to see - asking Our Lady to intercede for their protection from the reach of the Third Reich.

Where is this monument? It looks kind of deteriorated.
