Piazza Navona


Rome, Italy (IT)
This piazza, which follows the plan of an ancient circus, was built in monumental style by the family of Pope Innocent X (Pamphili). It sums up the Roman style of the 17th century. The church of Sant' Agnese was designed by Borromini and Rainaldi, the two fountains are by Bernini, and Pietro da Cortona painted the gallery in the Pamphili palace.
