Description
On 29 June 2015, the Saints Peter and Paul Feast, I wanted another panoramic viewpoint and I chose it from one of my favorites: Piazzale Caffarelli, next to Campidoglio square designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti (who designed the S. Peter Dome, too), where the venerable Musei Capitolini are.
