The Calling of Saint Matthew hangs in the Contranelli Chapel of the San Luigi dei Francesi church, a reminder that a 400-year-old art was provocatively modern when it was first conceived.
This church contains a cycle of awesome paintings by the Baroque master Caravaggio about the life of St. Matthew. These paintings are unique masterpieces that alone worth not only a visit, but for certain also a trip.
A rental contract of 1604 AD reveals to us what were the needs of Caravaggio, one of the most famous painters of all time, the "damned" character of Italian art - In Rome, we find traces of everything that happens, even more than 400 years ago.

“You cannot leave Rome without taking the Baroque's route, sightseeing the most important Bernini and Borromini's works of art. These architects shaped what in the 17th century was the fanciest and classiest city in the world. What you cannot miss: - Piazza Navona with Sant'Agnese in Agone facade and the Fountain of the Four Rivers - Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza and his unique, super elegant dome (one of my favorite in Rome) - Via XX Settembre and its churches - Ponte Sant'Angelo and its statues - The world famous Galleria Prospettica and its illusionism, in Palazzo Spada - The Spada Chapel in the San Girolamo della Carità Church (might not be Borromini, but still the Baroque's genius at its finest!) - The Oratorio dei Filippini and Santa Maria in Vallicella - The Propaganda Fide Palace and Sant'Andrea delle Fratte”

“This is a fantastic place where to rest, maybe have a quick snack and relax with Rome's view. A particular aspect of this area is the magnificent view that you will see through a keyhole. Yes, a door keyhole. You may ask to whoever walks by that area. Must see”
