Rafael's Roma Vacation Episode II - San Carlo al Corso




Episode II

San Carlo al Corso


我們在Via del Corso街發現了一所很漂亮的教堂 - Sant'Ambrogio e Carlo al Corso教堂。
我們參觀了它,之後我們去了一間不錯的餐館,吃了美味的寬麵條和比薩餅。

We found a very beautiful basilica in Via del Corso - the Sant'Ambrogio e Carlo al Corso church.
After we visited it we went to a nice restaurant to have a nice lasagna and salmon pizza.


"Sant'Ambrogio e Carlo al Corso (usually known simply as San Carlo al Corso) is a basilica church in Rome,
 facing the central Via del Corso. It is dedicated to Saint Ambrose of Milan and Saint Charles Borromeo,
 also native of that city. It is one of at least three churches in Rome dedicated to this saint,
including San Carlo ai Catinari and San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane.

The construction was begun in the occasion of the canonization of St. Charles Borromeo (1610),
under the direction of Onorio Longhi and, after his death, of his son Martino. The site was that of the
 former church of San Nicola de Tofo. The dome, resembling that of Santi Luca e Martina,
was designed by Pietro da Cortona (1668), who was also responsible of the apse and of the rich
 internal decoration. The façade was designed by Cardinal Luigi Alessandro Omodei,
 who did not like the project prepared by Carlo Rainaldi.

The internal plan is on the Latin cross. The central vault is frescoed with a Fall of the
 Rebel Angels (1677–1679) by Giacinto Brandi. The altarpiece, depicting the
Saints Ambrose and Charles, was painted around 1685-1690 by Carlo Maratta."

  13. Portuguese? I only know a few Portuguese words from Malay, like garpu (fork), jendela (window), almari (cupboard).

    Malaysia was onced a Portuguese colony. Then, the Dutch came, followed by the British. Then Japanese and British again. Finally gained our independence in 1957...

    No, it's not a dolmen like the Stonehenge. It's actually a group modern art sculptures, including the "doughnut". ;-)
