Last night was La Notte Bianca, the white night, in Rome with lots of cultural stuff going on all night all over the city. The programme was so massive that you could only do a fraction of it so I had picked a couple of things I would like to see beforehand.
After having had dinner with my fellow “borsisti” from the Academy and seeing Pantheon and the Temple of Hadrian with them I went on on my own. Here are some impressions.
Walking down the Corso Vittorio Emmanuele I dropped by a couple of 16th Century palaces now housing ministeries and organisations and not normally accessible to the public. This is from Palazzo della Valle and the frescoes are probably by Giulio Romano’s circle. They were very well done and nice.
What a nice white and warm night! Far too many people but then…that’s what it’s all about eh?
