Francesco Borromini, along with Gianlorenzo Bernini, shaped Rome through art and architecture during the Baroque period in the 17th century. During this period, Baroque architecture played with form, space and light to manipulate visual perception. Borromini displayed an uncanny talent in making the most out of the spatial constraints and through geometry and curvilinear elements in his designs, created some of Rome’s most magnificent space of the time. His work is found throughout the city and includes buildings such as Sant’Ivo, Palazzo Barberini, Palazzo Spada, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane and the Chapel of Three Kings in the Collegio di Propaganda Fide.
