Giorno Dieci // Day 10

5 Giugno // June 5

This week begins the most intense week of my art class with Suzanne. We started off at Sant'Agostino Church where we viewed Caravaggio's Madonna di Loretto and numerous other famous works. Next, San Luigi dei Francesi where we viewed several more Caravaggio works. On the trek up to the Galleria Doria Pamphilj, we noticed a camera crew and crowds. Our first instinct was that the pope was coming...such tourists we are. It ended up being a civil protest of some sort. The Doria-Pamphilj family runs the museum and even lives in the upper quarters of the house! It was a gorgeous museum filled with many famous works. Many of the girls from the art class stayed in to work on visual analyses, but Brooke and I ventured out to get dinner. We ended up eating at Ristorante Abruzzi where I got the house pasta...it was amazing. While we were exploring and attempting to make it back to the 913 bus stop, we ended up going even farther away. We walked past the Vittorio Emmanuele and found ourselves in Trastevere. We sat on the steps and watched a street performer play the guitar until we gave up and took a taxi back to campus. I love spontaneous nights like these.
