Sant’ Ivo alla Sapienza

Update: I made it inside the church in March of 2018.

This wonderful church by Francesco Borromini anchors the famed university of “La Sapienzia” or the “Wisdom.” Reacting to Gianlorenzo Bernini’s architecture, Borromini’s radical design seeks to create an aesthetic wholly void of classicism.

The tall turret, variously described as a Tower of Babel, illustrates Borromini’s unique approach to architecture.

The hours in my guidebook were wrong, so I didn’t get inside this beauty.
