a place of art galleries and fashionable restaurants, which once housed shops and stalls.

It is a parallel of Via del Babuino, the road that runs from Piazza del Popolo to the Spanish Steps.

One of the symbols of the street is the FONTANA DELLE  ARTI, a marble fountain, surmounted by a bucket of brushes, two masks, one sad and one happy (the moods of the artists) resting on shelves applied on painters easels.

You are in the heart of Rome, but the silence is so pleasant to make you forget the chaotic traffic (at two steps).

CARAVAGGIO in ROME

Caravaggio.
I think there’s anything to say.

But since we are, let me give you some addresses where you may admire the Caravaggio paintings in Rome.

CARAVAGGIO in ROME
Start from the Santa Maria del Popolo Church, in Piazza del Popolo, and you will find two of his finest works: The Conversion of St. Paul and the Martyrdom of St. Peter.

CARAVAGGIO in ROME

Go to Via del Corso and planned a stop at the Galleria Doria Pamphili, to admire the Rest on the escape into Egypt.

CARAVAGGIO in ROME

Continue towards the center, Piazza Navona, and visit St. Luigi dei Francesi Church, where you could stay long to admire the Calling of San Matteo, but if you have little time, go to the nearby Church of St. Augustine, to see the Madonna of the Pilgrims.

There are other sites where you can admire Caravaggio, as in the Galleria Borghese

It’s been 26 years since it snowed in Rome…

Today I had prepared another post but this morning when I woke up, a surprise awaited me!

Who likes the snow in the city? I like!

Or rather, I like to see the effect it does in Rome wake up under a white blanket up to 50 cm high!

It’s been 26 years since it snowed in Rome …

It looks like magic, I expect to see elves jump from one monument to another … while the gulls seem to be asking where are they!

So far, all meet in Piazza del Popolo for a “Snowballs battle”!

I begin to prepare myself!
