My two homes are Rome, of course, and the place where I have my day job, Washington, D.C. Spring has sprung, and while out enjoying the cherry blossoms, I could not help but notice the influence of Rome everywhere on the buildings of the American capital … as well as a few other similarities.
Both cities are dominated by magnificent domes (and both have a government that doesn’t seem to get anything done) ….
Both offer some inspiring architectural beauty, making your spirit soar ….
And both have moments of classical perfection ….
Yes, the buildings in D.C. are a little younger then those in Rome. But the beauty is timeless!
