a tale of a few cities

Piazza della Minerva

Posted in italia, roma by petercombe on November 13, 2008


One of my favorite spots in Rome centres on Bernini’s sculpture of an elephant supporting an obelisk. I remember, years ago passing this many times on my way to the Dante Alighieri school near Pantheon. It was odd seeing it this time as I remember the piazza being rather small, yet on this particular visit the square seemed huge and much less intimate. Quite the reverse of how one usually remembers things.
