Rome

The great beauty of the Italian capital: views, monuments (Roman Forum, Trajan's Column, Trajan's Markets, etc.) and works of art (the frescoes by Andrea Pozzo in the Church of S. Ignazio di Loyola, those by Mattia Preti and Domenichino in the Basilica of St Andrew, those of Baciccia in the Church of Jesus and those of Pinturicchio in the Basilica of S. Maria del Popolo).
