Campo di UW



Last night we attended Jeffrey Collins' delightful talk, "Pompous Baloney? Telling the Time in Batoni's Portrait of Pope Pius VI," the last in the University of Washington's series at the UW Rome Center on Campo dei Fiori. Jennifer Wilkin puts these evenings together and contributes her curiosity, charm, and networking skills, and we are grateful to her and to the University for the kindness, hospitality, and sense of community that are a feature of these events. The evening ended on the terrace high above the Campo, with this magical vision of the sun setting squarely behind the dome of St. Peter's. Too much. Bill
