Santa Cecilia Roma 1976

This is what Rome looked like in 1976. I was staying at a pensione (an extended-stay bed and breakfast) next to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Rome's famous school of classical music. The big building you see with the arched windows is their concert hall. All day long I could hear the instrumentalists practicing. I was busy making as many drawings and paintings of architecture as I could. This one was the view out my window.
