Rome, Italy - Villa Borghese Rome is filled with innumerable treasures and this must be one of the greatest and perhaps least well- known. It is a beautiful property with one of the most amazing art collections. Like the Cistine Chapel, I learned yet again the true beauty and magnificence of great art. The villa is filled with Renaissance and 17th century paintings and sculpture that bewitch the eye and touch the soul.
The Mouth of Truth -Starting from the Middle Ages, it was believed that if one told a lie with one's hand in the mouth of the sculpture, it would be bitten off. The Mouth of Truth is located in the portico of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome, Italy
