Borromini, Francesco (1599 - 1667) - Palazzo Spada, Rome (1660). Forced perspective optical illusion in the arcaded courtyard, in which diminishing rows of columns and a rising floor create the visual illusion of a gallery 37 meters long (it is 8 meters) with a life-size sculpture at the end of the vista, in daylight beyond: the sculpture is 60 cm high, the hedges made of stone.

Piazza del Campidoglio on Capitoline Hill is one of Rome's most beautiful squares, designed in the sixteenth century by Michelangelo. Yet another example of Michelangelo's genius and a wonderful example of sacred geometry in architecture.
