sketching everyday since 2010
Returning from Salerno, I stopped 3 hours in Naples and other 3 hours Rome, like that I was able to add some more emotion to the trip (I must admit, though it was relaxing…)
Rome was special chaotic that day, due to the Roma Marathon; there were large queues at the airport and the biggest concentration of asics running shoes I ever seen!
A special red back pack was given to the runners, like this pair I had in front of me.
Chiesa de S. maria dell’Orto (sec. XVI). Facciata de Jacopo Barozzi – Il Vignola.
The Vicolo dell’Atleta (Alley of the Athlete) gets its name from the finding of a statue of an athlete there, around the middle of the 19th century. The statue, which is called Apoxyomonosand can be seen in the Vatican Museums.
