Art Everywhere

One of the things that has always struck me about being in Italian cities like Rome and Florence is that there is art everywhere. I was walking around the city this afternoon enjoying the first sunny day we have had in about a week (as was everyone else in Rome) and every time I turned a corner, I walked into either a stray ancient monument or remnant of one, or a 15th, 16th or 17th century palazzo.

I like the idea of contemporary artists responding canonical works of ancient, Renaissance, and Baroque art and architecture in the city so I was thrilled when I read about one such event this week on the ECool blog:

Enjoy.

  1. How did your giro with the ragazzi go on Friday? Glad you were out enjoying the sun. It was a gorgeous gorgeous day.

  2. At this point during Indiana’s winter I’m not sure which I would appreciate more- a day of sunshine or a Renaissance remnant outside my door. Glad you got both!
