The Trevi’s fountain is not only the Rome’s most magnificent fountain, but also the abundant water, which forms an essential part of the design, fills the little piazza with its sound. Piazza di Spagna has been for centuries the centre of the artistic and literary life of Rome. In the middle of Piazza di Spagna there is the Fontana della Barcaccia, a delightful fountain, once thought to be the masterpiece of Pietro Bernini. The theatrical Scalinata Trinità dei Monti or Spanish Steps were built to connect the church Trinità dei Monti and the Pincio. In an elegant pink house, it is the apartment where the poet Keats spent the last three months of his life. It is now a Museum, the Keats-Shelley. From Piazza di Spagna we’ll walk in one of the most famous road for shopping: via Condotti leads to Piazza Navona, preserving the dimension of the Stadium of Domitian, a building which could probably held some 30.000 spectators. Three monumental fountains decorate the piazza. The central fountain of the Four Rivers represents the triumph of Bernini’s baroque style, In few minutes reach Piazza della Rotonda, made famous by the Pantheon.
This building was a temple dedicate to all the gods. Close to piazza della Rotonda there is piazza della Minerva with a delightful elephant monument in the centre. This is a bizarre work by Bernini and the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. It’s a Ghotic church , an extreme rarity in Rome. The church contains some fine monuments and works of art: the statue of the Risen Christ by Michelangelo, under the altar lies a marble effigy of St. Catherine of Siena, marking the place where her decapitated body is buried. In the apse behind are the tombs of the two most famousMedici popes: Leo X and Clement VII.
