CCR Walks: Bernini and Borromini - November 12, 2017

Follow in the footsteps of the ultimate courtier, Cavalier Bernini, as his carriage rumbles past the haunts of his youth, and the great man remembers his architectural duel with his most bitter rival, the great Francesco Borromini. This walk strings together some of the churches which saw this rivalry soar skywards, as each tried to outdo the other, and thus succeded in transforming Baroque Rome into a stony tribute to the two mens' genius.
