Publisher's Summary

This Jane's Smart Art Audio Guide is in-depth and indispensable, for art-lovers and history-buffs who want to hear about more than just the highlights!

Behind the unassuming façade of this early Renaissance church is an extraordinary trove of celebrated art and unique architectural features. The church has played a central role in Rome's history by virtue of its location just inside the principle north gate. Learn about the prominent people, like Martin Luther, who have figured in it's history, and about the art popes and cardinals commissioned to decorate their family chapels.

Virtually bursting with important architecture and art, from the first dome of the Roman Renaissance to the last Baroque tomb, there's something noteworthy at every turn!

See it all with Jane's engaging narration guiding you, step-by-step, through its layered history. Come away with a deep and lasting appreciation of the art, politics, culture, and religion that have intertwined over centuries to create the unique character of this remarkable place.

With Jane as your audio tour guide, you can listen while you look at this fascinating marriage of early Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture, including:

  • A 700-year-old icon brought by Pope Gregory IX in 1231
  • Two ground-breaking paintings by Caravaggio
  • Bregno's original altar (1473) and Bernini's replacement (1655)
  • Work by other important artists: paintings by Pinturicchio and Carracci; architecture by Bramante, Raphael, Bernini, and Valadier; sculpture by Sansovino and Algardi
  • Stained glass windows (1509), a rarity in Rome

    The 20-minute "Slice of History" segment provides background context to enhance your appreciation of what you'll see when you're there.

    A printable eight-panel PDF file includes a floor plan keyed to the audio track list, a history timeline, and a glossary to clarify unfamiliar terms.
