Borromini and Bernini confront each other
Walking trough the streets of the historical centre of Rome, we will see how come there are some falcons with breasts at Palazzo Falconieri, along the famous via Giulia, what the lion of the fountain of rivers is doing at Piazza Navona and how come there is a spiral on the dome of Borromini’s church of St. Ivo alla Sapienza (. The Baroque is illusion, scenography, amazement in form and symbolic references. A visionary Jesuit friar named Athanasius Kircher circulates in Baroque Rome in the 1600s, an expert in esoteric symbols of ancient times, while Free masonry developed in those years.
