                                 A BILL


 
    To award posthumously a Congressional gold medal to Constantino 
                                Brumidi.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:
            (1) On July 26, 1805, Constantino Brumidi was born in Rome, 
        Italy of an Italian mother and a Greek father who inspired him 
        with a love of liberty.
            (2) While Constantino Brumidi's Greek ancestry stirred his 
        passion for liberty and citizenship, his Italian heritage 
        provided the art styles of the Renaissance and the Baroque 
        which influenced the artwork of the United States Capitol.
            (3) Constantino Brumidi became a citizen of the United 
        States as soon as he was able, embracing its history, values, 
        and ideals.
            (4) Beginning in 1855, Constantino Brumidi designed and 
        decorated one House and five Senate committee rooms in the 
        Capitol, as well as the Senate Reception Room, the Office of 
        the Vice President, and, most notably, the President's Room, 
        which represents Brumidi's supreme effort ``to make beautiful 
        the Capitol'' of the United States.
            (5) In 1865 Constantino Brumidi completed in just 11 months 
        his masterpiece, ``The Apotheosis of Washington,'' in the eye 
        of the Capitol dome.
            (6) In 1871 Constantino Brumidi created the first tribute 
        to an African American in the Capitol when he placed the figure 
        of Crispus Attucks at the center of his fresco of the Boston 
        Massacre.
            (7) In 1878 Constantino Brumidi at the age of 72 and in 
        poor health, began work on the Rotunda frieze, which chronicles 
        the history of America.
            (8) On February 19, 1880, Constantino Brumidi died at the 
        age of 74, four and a half months after slipping and nearly 
        falling from a scaffold while working on the Rotunda frieze.
            (9) Constantino Brumidi, proud of his artistic 
        accomplishments and devoted to his adopted country, said, ``My 
        one ambition and my daily prayer is that I may live long enough 
        to make beautiful the Capitol of the one country on earth in 
        which there is liberty.''.
            (10) Constantino Brumidi's life and work exemplify the 
        lives of millions of immigrants who came to pursue the American 
        dream.
            (11) 2005 marks the bicentennial of Constantino Brumidi's 
        birth.

Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate shall make

charged against the United States Mint Public Enterprise Fund such 
amounts as may be necessary to pay for the costs of the medals struck 
pursuant to this Act.
