Baroque Music in Rome

The Piazza Navona  provides an incredible and exciting artistic atmosphere. Not only because at its very center you find the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, the masterpiece of Bernini (one of the greatest genius of the baroque period). Street artists of different expressions like painters, musicians and actors make the place unique with a vibrant energy that reaches even the most indifferent heart.

In front of the square there is another magnificent expression of the baroque creative movement: the church of St. Agnes in Agony, built in the seventeenth century, a legacy from the architect Borromini (in competition with Bernini at that times) which is considered a jewel of baroque architecture.
