camminando | Roman Walkabouts

Rain finally stopped after sunset and I started my walks in the darkness celebrated by the Roman theatrical street lighting.

Baroque is the theme du jour and obelisks are a recurrent encounter, while the country is anxiously waiting for Berlusconi's resignation. I walk by Palazzo Montecitorio,

My itinerary is marked by my visual memories as recorded by my smart phone —the only camera of my walkabout, as usual.

Piazza del Popolo: Chiese Gemelle

Piazza del Popolo: Obelisco Flaminio

A courtyard in Via Margutta

 Borromini: Palazzo di Propaganda Fide

Colonna Traiana in Piazza della Colonna, in front of Palazzo Chigi

 Palazzo Montecitorio,where the Italian Parliament meet


Piazza Navona: Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi facing Borromini's Sant'Agnese
