Sant’Eusebio

Posted on Aug 11, 2010 | 2 comments


I pass this church, set back off the street on via Napoleone III just next to Piazza Vittorio, every day on the tram. The other day I decided to take a photo of the beautiful sculpture of the Madonna and child that stands in front. I have no idea who sculpted it and I had no idea the name of the church, but as one knows in Rome, it doesn’t need to be famous to be beautiful. A quick search on google told me that it was the church of Sant’Eusebio. What I enjoyed most about the sculpture was the smooth and silky texture achieved, which caused the light to bounce off the figures in a striking way. I hope you enjoy it as well!

  2. you could almost imagine the virgin's face wet with tears as she offers up her child for the salvation of the world. i'm not religious but sculptures like this almost make me want to be…..almost.
