So, at the left you will find a baroque church with paintings of Caravaggio, behind there is the Pantheon and at the right the best place in Italy to drink coffee.
Bernini designed the sculpture of this elephant that holds and Egyptian obelisk. A Latin inscription explains: only a mind strong like an elephant can sustain the solid knowledge of the ancient Egypt.
In this square there is one of the first christian churches of Rome: San Lorenzo in Lucina (IV – V century A.D.). Lucina is the name of the Roman matron who gave the permission to build that place of worship.
A rococò square designed by the architect Filippo Raguzzini in 1727-1728. It wants to remind the stage of a theater.
I couldn't not note that vertical sign.

As I always says, the best way to enjoy Rome is to get lost.
The hub of the nightlife in the rione of Trastevere. I always miss to sit on those stairs and see the spectacle of life. Rome misses its poet Trilussa (1871-1950). Of him is the poem of the cripple cricket (Er grillo zoppo) telling the story of a dying cricket that lost a leg for the fun of a child. The blood was coming out as a shining spark, beautiful vision for the cricket because it was meaning that his suffering was near to end. And concludes: may God bless every drop of blood spilled to write the word freedom.
Is always nice to end the evening in the Rione Trastevere.
