From the Last Judgment by Pietro Cavallini in Santa Cecilia, an extraordinary frescoed wall hidden behind the Nuns Choir and only seen by few, we will walk to the Church of S. Francesco a Ripa in quest of some hidden Berninis…
The Rione di Trastevere, besides the many pizzerias, clubs and restaurants hides in its churches.
Starting from the Basilica of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere built upon one of Rome’s oldest churches, dedicated to the Patron Saint of Music and Musicians. We will admire the IX century mosaics and the XIII century altar by Arnolfo di Cambio. The Church is also famous for the fragments of the Last Judgement Painted by Pietro Cavallini, an extraordinary frescoed wall hidden behind the Nuns Choir and only seen by few people.
