Piazza Navona is one of the most beautiful and renowned square in Rome. It was built by the Pamphili family; noble family of Rome intertwined with political and papal life in the period of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Pope Innocent X (Giovanni Battista Pamphilj, a member of the prestigious family) had the square built with a monumental style. Piazza Navona is one of the most important symbols of Baroque Rome. The square houses some artistic and architectural elements of great value. At the center of the square there is the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It represents the four corners of the earth: the Rio della Plata, the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube. Opposite the Bernini fountain is the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, a work by Francesco Borromini and Girolamo Rainaldi. Finally, the square also houses the Palazzo Pamphilj, a majestic work erected between 1644 and 1650 by Girolamo Rainaldi. The gallery, inside the palace, contains frescoes by Pietro da Cortona. Other prestigious buildings that surround the square are: Palazzo Braschi, Palazzo De Torres, Palazzo Tuccimei; all monumental buildings dedicated to ancient and influential Roman families. ...read
Piazza di Spagna, together with the Trinità dei Monti stairway, is one of the most famous and visited squares in Rome. Its name derives from the Spanish palace, home of the Spanish embassy to the Holy See. The square is also characterized by the beautiful and famous fountain of the Barcaccia (built in the early Baroque period), which was sculpted by the Italian sculptor and painter Pietro Bernini and the more famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini (son of Pietro). At the foot of the Trinità dei Monti staircase (in the right-hand corner), there is the one that was the home of the English poet John Keats. The poet died in the same house in 1821. The house today has been transformed into a museum dedicated to the memory of Keats and to that of his friend Percy Bysshe Shelley. Obviously, the square is also visited by monumental steps of Trinità dei Monti. It has 135 wide steps leading from the square to the church of Trinità dei Monti. ...read
