An artist’s city 美術家の都市

March 28, 2013

Art is everywhere in Rome.  Certainly, when talking about art, one cannot forget the amazing architecture but, for the purposes of this post, I’m speaking primarily of sculpture.  From the bold statements of the famous Trevi fountain or the  Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, to the less ostentatious drinking fountains (fontanella) seen all over the city, I’ve not been to a city that has more publicly displayed art as Rome.

ローマでどこにも美術物を見えます。特に彫刻なことがあります。たとえば、ベルニニのトレビの泉から飲み物の泉まで、計術的なであります。

Of course, you can certainly get your fair share of art in the various galleries and museums throughout the city.  The big three are most certainly the Capitoline museum, the Vatican museum and, not to be missed, the Borghese gallery.  As with most museums I’ve been to in Europe, these are places one needs to return to in order to fully appreciate what’s on offer, especially the really large museums.  It took me 4.5 hours to go through the Vatican museums and still, I didn’t see everything I wanted to.  But at some point, you just end up saying, “enough”.  The Borghese gallery is a private operation and you must book time in advance as they only allow a certain number of people in at a time, limited to a two-hour block.

もちろん、ローマにたくさん美術館があります。一番大切な美術館三つがあります。カピトリーンやバチカンやボールゲイージだと思います。一回だけを訪れたらまでもないでしょう。たとえば、バチカン美術館に行った時、4時間半が掛かりましたけどせんぶ見えなかったです。ボールゲイージのは私立ですので予約をしなければいけません。この美術館はおすすめしています。面白いですよ。
