Angels and Demons Tour: EARTH (Part 1)

 This is the Full Episode version. On this Angels and Demons tour you will be guided to incredible places in Rome that were featured in the novel/movie. This episodes covers in great detail the church of St Maria del Popolo where you will discover the Chigi Chapel: the Altar of Science representing Earth. This amazing church is not only filled with art treasures from top Renaissance and Baroque masters, but so rich in symbols that it's really no wonder it became part of a plot involving religious and pagan symbols.

This is the best highlight of the article: 

"[...]This beach, called Eco del Mare, is owned by a beautiful woman with salt-crunched chestnut hair. Whom you will find more often than not sitting at her desk, windswept, smoking a cigarette. Who is married to a famous Italian pop star. Named—I’m translating—Sugar (Zucchero Fornaciari). And they live on a farm in the Lunigiana. And the food here—the olive oil, the jams, the vegetables, the fruit—comes from the farm. Everything that doesn’t come from the sea, anyway. Even the Vermentino that you can drink barefoot as you eat lunch overlooking the beach.[...]"
