40 minutes sketch (I had a train to catch) from the Campidoglio, looking at the Roman Forum. Right after going to the amazing Edward Hopper’s show (first time I saw his originals watercolors)
This morning at Roma-Termini, while waiting for the Freccia (train). Hard to sketch with all this crowd crossing in front of my eyes!
Returning from Salerno, I stopped 3 hours in Naples and other 3 hours Rome, like that I was able to add some more emotion to the trip (I must admit, though it was relaxing…)
Rome was special chaotic that day, due to the Roma Marathon; there were large queues at the airport and the biggest concentration of asics running shoes I ever seen!
A special red back pack was given to the runners, like this pair I had in front of me.
This afternoon at S. Carlino. I was 2 hours in Rome, on my way to Salerno. So, I had time to eat a cornetto e cappuccino, a tasteful panino and to sketch Borromini’s baroque master piece!
One of my favorite libraries at Rome (Biblioteca di Archeologia e Storia dell'Arte).
By the way, it is forbidden to paint there! I found it while finishing this drawing...
Chiesa de S. maria dell’Orto (sec. XVI). Facciata de Jacopo Barozzi – Il Vignola.
The Vicolo dell’Atleta (Alley of the Athlete) gets its name from the finding of a statue of an athlete there, around the middle of the 19th century. The statue, which is called Apoxyomonosand can be seen in the Vatican Museums.
One cold night at Rome, near the famous Bar S.Calisto. I love the night light at Rome!
