Did you know Rome has a pyramid? Pyramid of Cestius…
Until July 26th Rome hosts a gigantic and “multi-venue” exhibition entirely focused on Baroque, the artistic style which still chracterizes most of the architectural features of the Eternal City.
The exhibition shows the evolution of Baroque art from its birth (first two decades of the Seventeenth century) to its highest peak, which gave the city a new shape.
