  • That birbaccionne of Pietro Aretino swore he saw Flannery's grave in St Augustine. Moreover, Fiammetta, had given precise instructions, in his will, on how to prepare his funeral Chapel in the Church that Sunday consorted with coworkers. During Holy week, then sat to hear the preaching of the first benches all their father confessor. The arrangement was not accidental: Fiammetta was a courtesan, and the San Agustin Church was called the Church of prostitutes. Not far from here, near via dei Coronari, is Piazza Fiammetta, dedicated, after just a few decades from death (1512), this famous woman of pleasure, lover of Cesare Borgia and other Cardinals from lustful Holy City. If you are interested, on the corner of the square and via degli Acquasparta, is his home, a 15th-century building with Tower.

  • Near Piazza Navona, a left turn at the end of via della Scrofa leads to the Renaissance church of St. Augustine, which takes up an entire side of the square. Was built between 1479 and 1483 using partly travertine of the Colosseum. Inside, there are many significant works of art: to the left of the main entrance there is the famous "Madonna del parto" by Jacopo Sansovino, one of the most revered in Rome as evidenced by the numerous votive offerings. In the first chapel on the left is the most interesting, namely the painting "Madonna of the pilgrims" done in 1605 by Caravaggio, whereas under the third pillar to the left of the nave is the beautiful group of Saint Anne, the Virgin and child "by Andrea Sansovino. Finally, in the Chapel to the left of the main altar, the tomb of Saint Monica, mother of Saint Augustine. However a basilica to visit for the numerous works that contain, in addition then take a nice walk through the streets of downtown.

  • Also some stuff there, but Sant'Agostino Church, Raphael and Caravaggio paintings have graced the normally. It is quite unthinkable in Japan. Paintings of the great artists in history you can enjoy free of charge! I'm out of money and have to go to the Museum you can see normally. Dubious is fine, but it is undeniable. Area are also same level Church, so take a look at here please stop by.
