S.M. Pace 1

More Roma Cancellata

Since the exhibition ROMA CANCELLATA: Public areas inaccessible to the Public in 2004, more public areas have been fenced off.  An example of this is the porch of Cortona’s masterpiece, Santa Maria della Pace near Piazza Navona.  Not only has an ugly fence closed off the porch interior, but large planters have been placed on the steps leading up to the porch.  The intention for this is obvious: to keep people out and away from this major landmark.
