The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

The rest of the basilica has also been beautifully decorated, thanks to generous support from various countries and ethnic groups. Here is a view of the main apse area, you can't see it very well, but the detail work on the frescoes along the sides looked almost 3-D, with glossy gold and then muted coloration on the rest of it. I wish I would have been able to stand there for awhile to absorb it longer!
