It is very easy to walk past things in Rome without noticing them – there are so many beautiful details that many are easy to miss.
I’ve been here for a couple months shy of two years now, and only recently did I notice this Madonna and Child on the building next door to mine!
I don’t recall the name of this type of ceramic art, but I’ve seen it in various parts of Italy. I believe it’s glazed terracotta. Very beautiful, and a nice “new” detail to notice amidst my routine walking around!
