Walking the 3.6 kilometres up the Monte della Guardia under the Portico di San Luca; with its 366 arches supported by colonnades, is a kind of dual mental and physical exercise. The columns fracture the dazzling natural light within the repeated perspectives, recalling Borromini’s trompe l’oeil at the Palazzo Spada, Rome: a mere 8 metres yet purporting to be 37.
