It’s impressive, to say the least, that these masterpieces are recreated with flower petals

Today was a holiday honoring Saint Paul and Peter so there was an artistic flower petal competition of “paintings” laid out in from of St. Peter’s. The wind was a bit strong today so not all of the flowers were intact by the time I made it out to see them. And also in honor of the holiday, fireworks were set off from Castel Sant’Angelo and everyone was along the riverbanks/bridges to see the show.

I&#39;m currently studying Architecture and minoring in Urban and Regional Planning (which has me even more excited to study abroad in Rome with its rich architectural history). As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
