George’s Postcard Note: Piazza del Popolo – What a sublime day! Not a cloud in the sky and not hot! We walked to the park above the Piazza to observe its elegance from above. There is value finding differing vantage points for viewing important places in cities – especially cities of incomparable beauty like this one. The Santa Maria in Montesanto sits proudly on the side of the Piazza framing the entry to Via del Corso. Its small dome provides foreground to St. Peter’s dominant form in the background and the ancient obelisk in the center – they make a triangle of history and form that repeats itself all over Rome.
