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.

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

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

The Liberty of Galleria Sciarra in Rome

From the historic center  you can head to Piazza Venezia, but I suggest you to make a stop at the Galleria Sciarra, in Via delle Muratte,  near Via del Corso.Immagine 4

The building, along with the nearby Teatro Quirino, was restored in the 1800 and was commissioned by Prince Maffeo Sciarra. The gallery is white and red with the decorations of  Giuseppe Cellini.IMG_5918

The theme of the decorations below is the woman in the role of wife, mother, educator and leading mind of the house.

In the upper band are instead represented other women who personify the feminine virtues: loyalty, humility and justice.IMG_5915

Virtues are represented in scenes of bourgeois life: Gardening, Conversation, Culinary skills, Musical entertainment, Exhortation to charity, Vanity, Marriage, Care of children.IMG_5914

Then, if you have a little peckish … I recommend a stop at  ANTICA BIRRERIA PERONI– (OLD BREWERY PERONI), in Via di San Marcello 19,within walking distance…

with his “kitchen that is good for the mood” and its famous real ales.
