Det skal I lave

This experience is a walk through the “Jesuit district” of Rome to get in touch with the fascinating history of the Order, but it is also an art of illusion experience as we will admire masterpieces of the Baroque Age created to capture our eyes and make us see a new reality. Get ready because vaults will move, paintings will seem to break into the buildings, curves will look to be corners and flat surfaces will appear rounded and high. We will start our visit admiring the vault and the fake cupola of the church of St Ignazio. The impression will be powerful, but to understand his skills and the true meaning of this illusionary technique, known as anamorphosis, we will continue discovering the painted corridor of St Ignatius’s rooms located into the House of the Order, just 5 min. walking distance . We will end with the Gesù church watching the surprising Macchina Barocca spectacle. Above the tomb of Ignatius, surrounded by art and music, we will experience the spectacular appearance of the massive silver statue of the Saint floating straight to Heaven. Catholic art has never been so entertaining…
