Rome is the capital of Italy and the country’s largest and most populated city and commune, with over 2.7 million residents in 1,285.3 km2 (496.3 sq mi). Rome today is one of the most important tourist destinations of the world, due to the incalculable immensity of its archaeological and artistic treasures, as well as for the charm of its unique traditions, the beauty of its panoramic views, and the majesty of its magnificent “villas” (parks).

Among the most significant resources are the many museums – (Musei Capitolini, the Vatican Museums, Galleria Borghese, including those dedicated to modern and contemporary art and great many others) – aqueducts, fountains, churches, palaces, historical buildings, the monuments and ruins of the Roman Forum, and the Catacombs. Rome is the 3rd most visited city in the EU, after London and Paris, and receives an average of 7–10 million tourists a year, which sometimes doubles on holy years. The Colosseum (4 million tourists) and the Vatican Museums (4.2 million tourists) are the 39th and 37th (respectively) most visited places in the world, according to a recent study.

Rome contains a vast and impressive collection of art, sculpture, fountains, mosaics, frescos, and paintings, from all different periods. Rome first became a major artistic centre during ancient Rome, with forms of important Roman art such as architecture, painting, sculpture and mosaic work. Metal-work, coin die and gem engraving, ivory carvings, figurine glass, pottery, and book illustrations are considered to be ‘minor’ forms of Roman artwork.

Dianne Parks – Jazz’n In The Alley

Dianne Parks was born and raised in New Orleans and still live in the New Orleans area, across Lake Pontchartrain, on the North Shore of the lake. She received her art education at McCrady School of Fine Art in the French Quarter and has been an artist for over 30 years. Her paintings are in collections throughout the United States and abroad. She paints in oil and acrylic on canvas, with emphasis on the vibrancy, color and light of southern Louisiana.

As she paints, her mind is filled with the feel of the streets or the taste of their food – the sounds, smells and ‘vibrations’ of the scene in her painting. She attempts to convey these emotions through her painting. Her hope is that as you look at the painting through the years, you not only remember the scene, you still feel it!

Dianne is a member of the St. Tammany Art Association, Art for Madisonville Association, the Arts Council of New Orleans and New Orleans Art Association. Although she has lived in many places in the U.S. and abroad, there is no place she would rather be than there, in south Louisiana, painting her wonderful home town, the outlying swamps and bayous, and its incomparable food!
