  • beautiful to see outside but insignificant outside, aside from a glass case with crochet-made Nativity scenes

  • Maybe it's good that there is a bridge to connect these two monuments placed-facing each other on opposite hillsides. Of course, the visit of the modern tourist would have earned in accessibility and weather but on reflection it would better-very-lost in beauty and poetry. The "great beauty" of the collection comes from the contrast between two buildings as diverse as function pointers, and architecture; from space plane-impalpable ...-separating them; from silent dialogue that seems intertwined for centuries between them, beyond the steep ravine. On the one hand, the Farnese Palace that stands as vigorous affirmation architecture-in full sun-power "Storm" of a family proud and prolific of Cardinals and popes: almost a novel "Olympus" triumphant in the perfect geometry of its forms. On the other hand, the convent Church of Santa Teresa, which seems almost to retreat in the woods that surround from at: discrete-symbol but with a strong issue-"otherworldly" powers that already from the shadow of its arches serlianas seems to offer-to everyone, even the Farnese ...-a moment of reflection and promise an inner peace to refreshment of the battles of life. Maybe why-in while I admired them both-I is echoed in my mind: voice of the pint-sized "Pupella Maggio who recited the verses of the equally great Eduardo de Filippo ..." I u truva peace ... ".

  • Commissioned by the Farnese is one of the most beautiful churches of the northern Lazio and is right in front of the South façade of the Palazzo Farnese. The massive and imposing façade, resting on a Tuff Cliff seen from afar. The Interior is rich in important works though it looks rather simple and essential. There is a beautiful painting depicting the miracle of San Silvestro and a painting depicting St. Anthony while preaching to the fish. Beautiful painting by Judith Holofernes's head size. On the altar is a magnificent painting by Guido Reni depicting Santa Teresa. Not to be missed. It should be remembered that the Church is part of the Pilgrim's House that welcomes people looking for reflection, spirituality and prayer.
