When I visited Rome I found this original way of sharing art and history.
In case you are up for and adventure I’ll share the exact location Right in front of the “Facoltà di Ingegneria civile e industriale” http://goo.gl/maps/kQNvl
Of course my curiosity lead my to read more about this painting, and the author:
The painting Girl with a Pearl Earring (Dutch: Het Meisje met de Parel) is one of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer‘s masterworks and, as the name implies, uses a pearl earring for a focal point. Today the painting is kept in the Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague. It is sometimes referred to as “the Mona Lisa of the North” or “the Dutch Mona Lisa“.
It also exist a film with the same name. ( Wich is in my list of movies to watch)
