Bufalo Ferrajoli Palace

Do you like historical buildings?

If you are lucky, you can spend a little time to visit the Palazzo del BufaloFerrajoli, which dates back to medieval times. The building can be visited only during parties, congresses and exhibitions.

Right downtown, close to Piazza Colonna and Via del Corso, this Palace has been the residence of Ferrajoli from ‘800, with the vast halls of the main floor with a breathtaking view of Piazza Colonna and the private apartments of the Marquess Giuseppe.

It ‘s interesting for the furniture, frescoes, coffered ceilings, and wonderful wallpapers!

Then, if you have a bit of appetite, enjoy a sandwich, at “The Sandwicheria”, in Via del Nazareno 16, just 5 minutes walk from the Palace!

Metaphysical painting: Giorgio de Chirico

“They say that Rome is the center of the world and thatSpanish is the center of Rome. My wife and I, therefore, we live in the center of the center of the world …”
Giorgio de Chirico

I would say yes.

Love Song by Giorgio De Chirico-1914Just in Piazza di Spagna, in fact, is the House-Museum of Giorgio de Chirico, italian painter, leading exponent of the artistic metaphysical painting.

Famous, his manikins, who began painting in the early decades of 1900.
In various metaphysical paintings, objects are totally incongruous with the context, like a rowboat in a living room.

So, before tackling the Spanish Steps, I suggest you visit this beautiful house…

Three floors of art, among his works, and romance between his canvas and brushes, in the beautiful seventeenth-century Palace of the Borgognoni.

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!
