During the 17th century the Great Gian Lorenzo Bernini (the creator of the Baroque style of sculpture) completed one of his most celebrated masterpieces: The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa.
Just five minutes walking distance from our hotel, on Via XX Settembre, inside the Santa Maria della Vittoria Church.
The scene represented is the union of matter and spirit referred by Teresa of Avila, the Spanish mystic on her book ‘‘The Life of Santa Teresa of Jesus’’. In the book she describes her experience of religious ecstasy in her encounter with an angel: ‘’I saw in his hand a long spear of gold, and at the iron’s point there seemed to be a little fire. He appeared to me to be thrusting it at times into my heart’’.
But yet, as you leave the church another great masterpiece, from the same artist is waiting just five minutes from there: The Triton Fountain.
Located in the Piazza Barberini and executed in travertine. It shows at its centre the powerful figure of the Triton, the sea god from the Greco- Roman Mythology. The fountain has a base of four dolphins that entwine the papal tiara (crown).
In times the idea was the most original: a sculptural fountain, like those from villa gardens, for the first time in a public urban setting. Always before public fountains in the city of Rome had been just passive basins for the reception of public water.
A short walk from Yes Hotel to find two jewels of the Baroque for your own delight. See you soon here, in this beautiful City.
