    The Egyptian obelisk is perfectly placed in the piazza del Bernini where it was erected in the late 16th century.

    Think where is the Obelisk should be based on the historical background, or maybe my knowledge and understanding is not enough, but as they watched, but eventually didn't know anything. Would certainly stands out, but of their own culture and art was neat. And had inadvertently gone eye look with a critical eye, while. Square matrix are not want to go to see when put free of charge and also there at night, too, just a beautiful place, so took lodging in Rome.
