About the quest

In the heyday of Italian Baroque in Rome, there were two extraordinary men, who worked alongside each other, but were at odds with each other. They were Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini. Both were outstanding architects, but were as different from one another as chalk and cheese. . . With bated breath, all of Rome watched their rivalry. The complex relationship between these two artists resulted in the fantastic Baroque architecture of Rome, examples of which we will see today. We will learn how the conflict between them started, and how it ended.

However, this isn’t an ordinary tour. To reach its end, you’ll have to really make some effort, because instead of a tour guide, you’ll be led through the streets of Rome by the legendary Polichinelle, one of the main characters of the Italian commedia dell'arte. Remember, Polichinelle’s main goal is to trick you! He will be giving you some riddles along the way! Good luck and watch out!
