    Makes me want to go there ASAP. Before proof of vaccination against Covid-19.

    All readers of this blog absolutely must read Archbishop Vigano’s latest missive on the vaccine!

    Rome is a modern city in old clothes. But the old clothes are magnificent. This photograph is taken just north of Piazza Navona on a busy street that, if followed in the direction of the shot, reaches the Tiber River. Vatican City is maybe a 15 minute walk. Because of the focal length of the camera lens you can be tricked into thinking the building at the end of the street is closer than it appears. Actually it is on the other side of the Tiber. It’s the Supreme Court building and its only about 120 years old and some Romans hate it and believe its too gaudy in its ornamentation. But, it is an imposing and grand structure representing well the weight of the Law. To the left of the building is the walk to Vatican City past the ancient Castel Sant’ Angelo and a huge modern statue of Catherine of Siena, patroness of Italy.
