Sant’Andrea Delle Fratte, Rome

One of my favorite architects is Francesco Borromini, and when I was in Rome, I sought out the church of Sant’Andrea delle Fratte, famous for the architect’s designs for the campanile and tambour over the crossing.

Try as I might, I realized that the urban fabric of the city around the church was far too dense for me to get a clear shot of the amazing creations towering above me! Too often in St. Louis, I can get clean shots of buildings from two or three blocks away because everything has been demolished in front of the famous landmarks. What a good problem to have: not being able to see a famous building from a long distance! Perhaps I will just have to take for granted the beauty of Borromini’s creation.
