During December break, the JFRC is quite empty and at the moment there are only 5 students on campus and a couple of SLAs. We are spending New Years in beautiful Rome and are all very excited about that, but before then we still have a couple of days to explore our wonderful city.
Wanting to make the most of our days here before school starts again, we decided to go to the Love exhibit near Piazza Navona. The exhibit is housed what used to be a convent: Chiostro del Bramante.
Before being admitted, we had some time to appreciate the architecture and with one semester of Art in Rome under our belts, we were able to identify the pilasters and the order of the columns which made us very proud. The Love exhibit was very interesting, it included art from many different artists in various mediums. There were sculptures, paintings, and film.
One of the best parts of the exhibit was a staircase where visitors were invited to write or draw anything about love. Afterward, we decided to eat gelato at Frigidarium, one of our favorite gelaterias and take a walk through Piazza Navona.
