Is there a GHOST in Palazzo de Cupis in Rome?

Here is  a treat not to be missed!
Walking through Piazza Navona and admiring the beautiful Bernini fountains, in these days, surrounded by stalls of  Christmas, you can get lost in a triumph of color and sweet!
If you feel dizzy, then look up ….. but do not be frightened!

I’m kidding, of course ….. BUT on one side of the Palazzo de Cupis, will greet you a small marble head, walled, inside of the facade, that an ancient roman legend says, is that of a ghost!!!
