I walk by this lovely sculpture about 2x every day, and half the time I am so busy looking down at the cobblestones so I don’t trip that I don’t even look up and see it.
But when I do look up at the palazzo, it repays me with its beauty. I love the rendering of the time-worn subject but here treated with art deco forms. So lovely.
The inscription underneath reads: A Maria Per La Pace, Le Donne Cristiane (to Maria of the Peace, the Christian women).
The Giardino Bardini has many views, actually.
To begin, with the heat of summer upon us, it always nice to gaze at a fountain.
Or the silhouette of a sculpture in the shade.
But, then, there is the showstopper view! Eccola!
(As I posted yesterday, I can’t use my best photos until I get home to my camera cord! Coming soon!)
Trevi Fountain, always spectacular.
Bernini’s Triton Fountain. Always enjoyable, even without the water flowing as today.
Love those Barberini bees!
Quattro Fontane. Always requires risking your life to look at on one of Rome’s busiest streets!
Borromini’s lovely church, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane.
