The Magic Door

Above the Magic Door of the Villa Palombara in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, Rome, [belonged to Massimiliano Palombara who was a member of the Rosicrucians] …Built in the 17th century there's a  six-pointed star encircled by the motto… "three are the wonders: God and man, mother and virgin, the one and three".
