Bank Art

Palazzo Rondinini on the one day a year you can visit it. The Roman banks open up to the public on the 1st Saturday of October. We waited in line for a bit and got to see some really interesting artwork and received some insight from our tour guide on what really goes on in here. Apparently, this building is also rented out to the Chess Club - a group of wealthy, influential Romans who sit around and discuss how to make more money (I guess).It was an interesting counterpoint to the demonstrations happening outside and around the western world that day...
Here are a few interesting sculptures
