  • It is an impressive group of sculptures, the work of Talpur who had previously collaborated on the altar of the homeland. The Saint is depicted with his arms raised aloft and palms facing in the direction of the basilica of Saint John Lateran, in place of prayer. Behind him, the disciples who accompanied him to Rome to meet Pope Innocent III for the recognition of the rule. On the back of the statue are the verses of the Divine Comedy, with whom Dante describes the figure of the Saint.

  • The place chosen for placement of the sculptural group is between the basilica di San Giovanni e Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. St. Francis seems to indicate San Giovanni Basilica to pray. His five followers retreat compared to Santo on different levels of the base.

  • The monument to Saint Francis of Assisi, opened in 1927 on the occasion of the 7th centenary of the death of the Saint, is by the sculptor Giuseppe Talpur. The positioning connects it visually with the Basilicas of s. Croce in Gerusalemme and St. John Lateran.

  • San Francesco in piazza San Giovanni?!? Unfair competition?!? Conflict of interest?!? Yet the Friar of Assisi, facing the imposing basilica of his "colleague" of Holiness, is by almost 1 century landmark in the neighbourhood Appio for Romans and tourists.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
