    Old man stops at nasoni to get his dog a drink; woman with baby carriage washing the wheels doesn't stop long enough to let man and dog get water... Sigh.

    Is anyone experiencing the webcam restarts after the first 30 seconds? I continually lose the sound and the video. This never used to happen with skyline webcams and I have the same provider as always. Thanks.

    This rainy day makes the Piazza look like an Impressionist painting.

    Earlier this evening, I had the pleasure of speaking to a Doctor friend (a neurologist and Roman native) about his experience with Monday's snowfall (26th of February). He said that he had the whole day off from work; spending most of the time downhill sledding, throwing snowballs and building snowmen with friends and colleagues... He said that the timing of the rare snowfall just after two weeks of enthused viewings of the Winter Olympics really inspired him to make the athletic most of the "Nordic" Winter phenomenon! GOOD FOR HIM! In my native Chicago, we enjoy Winter sports and activities all season long! ;-)

Rome - Piazza Navona

Piazza Navona is one of the most beautiful and largest squares in Rome, daily visited by hundreds of tourists coming from all over the world.

Originally built as Domitian's stadium (also known as Circus Agonalis), in 85 AD was used exclusively for athletics and race horses, after the restoration works done by Alessandro Severo during the 3th century, Piazza Navona was completed during the 17th century and transformed into a large urban space, a highly remarkable masterpiece of Baroque architecture under Pope Innocents X Pamphili who intended to celebrate the rise of the papal family; its huge original dimensions (276x106 meters and a capacity of 30000 spectators) gave the square its long oval shape (still retained today) while thanks to its particular structure Piazza Navona was in the past regularly turned into a summer habit, a space completely flooded on all Saturdays and Sundays of August until 1866.

Originally named "in Agone" (from latin "agones", meaning games) from the 15th century it was developed, new churches and palaces around were built, the old structures razed and replaced with more modern buildings constructed in the unique Renaissance and Baroque style, thus Piazza Navona became a public and prestigious space enriched by architectural treasures of extraordinary beauty and historical importance, it is worth a mention: Fountain of Neptune (Fontana del Nettuno or dei Calderari) created by Giacomo Della Porta and abandoned for a long time until the end of the 19th century, when it was completed by Zappalà and Della Bitta; the magnificent Four Rivers Fountain (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi), designed by Bernini and situated in the heart of the square in front of the Church Sant'Agnese in Agone (Chiesa di Sant'Agnese in Agone), its base supports four river-gods representing the four major rivers known at that time: Nile, Danube, Ganges and Rio della Plata, the ancient obelisk is surmounted with the Pamphili family emblem, while the construction of the church began under the architects Rainaldi and, at a later stage at the instigation of Pope Innocents X (who here lies), under Borromini; the church stands exactly where St. Agnes is believed to have found martyrdom, the interior is enriched by golden objects and marble while its basement keeps some ruins from the antique Domitian's stadium; the Moor Fountain (Fontana del Moro) designed by Della Porta and built under Pope Gregory VIII, was later restored and completed by Bernini under Pope Innocents X; the Renaissance Church Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (Chiesa Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore), imposing palaces such as Palazzo Braschi, Palazzo Lancellotti, Palazzo Tuccimei and Palazzo Pamphilj.

Piazza Navona is also well known to be home to many street artists, performers and painters attracting thousands of tourists and locals every day, moreover it is surrounded by a magical atmosphere during the winter time, the Christmas and the Epiphany market takes place here every year, due to its size and location, it is rightly considered one of the most beautiful, crowded and animated Christmas markets in Italy.
