My Italian is rusty. What building is this? I mean, what's it for?
I don't know, John; as modern architecture goes, that thing could be so much worse!My worst beef about it is that it was CLOSED on every single occasion that I happened to manage to get to it, so I never managed to get a look at more of the Ara Pacis than what you can see through the glass walls. Boo.
On the inside it is beautiful and fitting.
raph, true; but ur quote say it all: "Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere." --- G. K. Chesterton
THAT'S the 'Ara Pacis'?Looks more like an enclosed bus stop to me!Wise words from GK Chesterton, John!Barb
