View of Rome through John Olivieri's sketches and DiNolfo's Renovation Updates

In February, John Olivieri went to Rome with a blank sketchpad and came back with a collection.  He filled his pages with sketches of the most recognizable and most eminent architectural facets of the Eternal City and captured a bit of the experience in the process.  Here are just some of the casual, yet evocative sketches he did while away, including the Pantheon, the Palazzo Farnese, the Campidoglio and St. Peter's Square.  If you would like to see more of John's trip Click here to check out the new gallery on our website.  Check back every so often to see our favorite sketches and hand drawings!
