The exploration of the works of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and their evolution over the years will be an opportunity to retrace the events of his private life, to get to know the man behind the artist, and discover frailty, strengths, his determination, his courage and, sometimes…his tendency to bully, too! The tour will cover:  - Spanish steps - Piazza Barberini - Santa Maria della Vittoria (Ecstasy of Saint Teresa) - Santa Maria sopra Minerva  - Sant'Andrea delle Fratte - Piazza Navona
