Piazza della Minerva

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.
