Focus on: Bernini

During your visit to the Louvre Museum or the Palace of Versailles, I will undoubtedly tell you about an artist who is very close to my heart: Bernini. I discovered this artist during my studies in Art History, but I loved him when I was walking through the rooms of the Borghese Gallery in Rome, which I had the chance to show you when I was working in Rome as a guide.
