La Sapienza

Posted on Jul 10, 2010 | 3 comments

The oldest of Rome’s universities, La Sapienza is located not far from San Lorenzo and if the architecture looks like what you’d see in EUR, it’s no coincidence, as one of the main city planners of EUR, Marcello Piacentini, worked on this project a few years earlier. I love the Orwellian nature of this building as it looms large in the darkness.


  1. Excellent shot! Rome is one of the most beutiful places in the world!

  2. yes, seen in this b/w night shot becomes a sort of metaphysical place.

    Interesting how the lights works filling a so open space.
    Like the shadow of Minerva projected on the right!

  3. It reminds of the White Stripe Cover Album.
    Amazing mix of light and darkness.
