Then we decided to go to Piazza Navona. What a neat place!! There are 3 fountains. The center huge one is by Bernini and is the Fountain of the 4 rivers (as seen in the film Angels and Demons)The center is a huge obelisk and the base is four gorgeously sculpted figure representing 4 rivers!
The Piazza is filled with artists painting and selling their wares and surrounded by places to eat!
|Apollo and his cithera (lyre)|
|the suicide of Glatea|
|Electra and Orestes (from the Oresteia by Aeschylus)|
|Nymph and satyr. Is that a dirty old man or what????|
|The "Duchess" with Venus and Cupid!|
I sat with my friend the ice pack and made a frittata for dinner. We woke up this morning to find that Obama will be our leader for the next 4 years and hope that things will improve for our country and for the world!
