Rome: Baroque Brilliance This second of three shows on Rome reveals a city busy with life and bursting with Baroque. We'll ramble through the venerable heart of Rome, admire breathtaking Bernini statues, ponder sunbeams inside St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, and mix and mingle with the Romans during an early-evening stroll.

      The late 15th century church was rebuilt in Baroque style to form a wall-pillar church with 4 bay nave, narrower choir and twin-towered western façade with a most imposing apsidal central section under a half dome. A Baroque facade, on the other hand, often features an attention-grabbing concentration of rich elements (e.g. curved walls, columns, blind arches, statues, relief sculpture) around a central entrance. F Churches are the most splendid form of Baroque architecture in Italy, while chateaux (country mansions) are the outstanding Baroque works.
