  • Shame really. Caravaggio lit by a dim light and for a short time. Ask for something more, but given light to these treasures of art! I liked the statue of the Madonna del Parto.

  • In piazza San Eustachio (near the famous Piazza Navona) you can admire this elegant Basilica, dating back to 1420, a real treasure trove containing treasures of art of great value. In the past the basilica was known to admit within one church in Rome, even the courtesans that were reserved the first few pews, to put them away from view of the populace and thus avoid distractions between the faithful (in the church there are the tombs of some of them, including Flannery Michaelis, the lover of Cesare Borgia). The façade is inspired by the Church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence, was designed by Leon Battista Alberti and built by Giacomo di Pietrasanta, using travertine from the Colosseum. The two lateral volutes were added by Vanvitelli, who between 1746 and 1750 he erected the new convent and cloister and profoundly altered the Interior. Three naves, divided by pillars, with ten side chapels, a transept and apse, flanked by four other chapels. In the first chapel on the left is the famous painting of the Madonna of the pilgrims "by Caravaggio, poorly lit and which can be viewed by introducing a dollar in the box that turns spotlights. The third pillar to the left of the nave is decorated with a fresco by Raphael depicting the "prophet Isaiah." On the high altar, designed by Bernini, is the "Virgin and child" from the Church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. Of particular importance is the altarpiece depicting "St John the Evangelist and Jerome" by Guercino in the chapel of the right transept, dedicated to the Patron Saint. Admire the magnificent pipe organ.
