Skywatch Friday

This lovely corkscrew lantern belongs to the 
church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza.  The church was 
designed by Borromini and begun in the 14th century 
as the chapel of the University of Rome
 (known as "La Sapienza").

[You can see more Skywatch here.]


  1. It DOES look like a corkscrew.... Beautiful detail.

  2. Oh gosh, this is a Pointy-Topped Doo-dad of magnificent proportions, Alexa. I love it!


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
