rome rome rome!

Enjoying my reclaimed love for Architectural Digest this morning, and AD travels this month to ROME. Rome is one of my favorite cities and fondest memories (you can't beat a birthday wish at the Trevi Fountain).  Interesting article on newly restored sights and a flourishing art scene, both ancient and contemporary.  Makes me want to revisit this city soon... andiamo!

The MACRO Contemporary Art Museum
(red-lacquered auditorium by architect Odile Decq)

MAXXI Art Museum by Zaha Hadid
(this design earned Hadid the Royal Institute of British Architect's Stirling Prize in 2010)

the recently reopened Palazzo Barberini
(houses the National Gallery of Ancient Art)
