... but good for posterity) the fountain at the base of the Spanish steps and the trevi were all being renovated. Our route was; Spanish steps which give great views, the Cavour and umberto bridges for views of the Vatican, chiesa de Francisco with three beautiful Caravaggio paintings (the calling of Matthew has a variety of symbols incorporated and demonstrated the light/dark approach so well), piazza novena with its ...
... restoration work being done when we visited. Most of the buildings one sees today were built in the two centuries each side of year Zero and some have stood up to the rigours of time [and abuse of Man] remarkably well. Possibly because many were built of brick rather than stone/marble so the structure was less attractive/useful to subsequent builders.
