Gian Lorenzo Bernini's home is on Via Liberiana in Rome. The Baroque sculptor lived here from 1606 to 1642. Born in Naples in 1598, his family soon mved to Rome, where he would spend the rest of his life. His artistic talent matured early and he soon found wealthy and influential patrons to support him. Bernini's place as the successor of Michelangelo and as the creator of Baroque sculpture was realized with four great works he produced: Aeneas, Anchises, and Ascanius in 1619, The Rape of Proserpina between 1621 and 1622, Apollo and Daphne between 1622 and 1625, and David between 1623 and 1624. In the ensuing years he would also take up painting and architecture, along with producing many classic pieces of sculpture, including five fountains located in Rome, and the design of St. Peter's Square in the Vatican. He died in 1680 and is interred in Santa Maria Maggiore, just across the street from this house.
