Ciao Zachy! I’m in Rome.

Caravaggio's Crucifixion of St. Peter at Santa Maria del Popolo, which I believe portrays a bunga bunga party gone horrible wrong.

Almost six years to the day since my first visit, I’ve returned to Rome (“all roads…” or something like that). Highlights of that trip included seeing Catholic stuff, getting smitten by Caravaggio, and having an Italian chotsky vendor at the Forum demonstrate his mastery of English by having me verify the accuracy of every synonym he knew for male genitalia (I was impressed).

Rather than crashing at a hostel though, this trip I’ll be staying at the Rome Cavalieri, a hotel I included in my first article for Air Canada’s enRoute, which focused on hotels that give their art the full-on gallery treatment (the Rome Cavalieri has $8 million worth of the stuff—just behind the front desk and it employs a full-time art historian).

So join the bunga bunga party in real time via

Thanks to the Rome Cavalieri and Quinn & Co. for hosting me.
