Rome, Italy. The "Monogramma del nome di Gesù", in marble and bronze, by Bartolomeo Ammannati (1574) on the façade of the Chiesa del Gesù in Rome. The Chiesa del Gesù is the mother church of the Society of Jesus (the "Jesuits"). The monogram, actually a trigram, which is the most common Christogram in western Christianity, is also the symbol of the Jesuit order and derives from the three first letters of the name Jesus in Greek (IHSOYS, IHSOYS). Later also interpreted as "Iesus Hominum Salvator" (Jesus, Saviour of Mankind), "Iesum Habemus Socium" (We have Jesus as Companion) or as "Iesu Humilis Societas" (Humble Society of Jesus) (from Wikipedia: Society of Jesus).
About Fabrizio Ruggeri
Roman, born 1966, photographer by vocation, I received my long-desired first camera when I was 7 years old, a Kodak Instamatic 36, and since then photography is one of my main interests in life. I work mainly in colour, using both digital and film, and develop my colour films by myself with a Jobo CPP-2 rotary processor. My main subjects of interest are urban landscape and sculpture, photographed with an explicitly descriptive attitude. My photographs have also been published in travel guides, newspapers and text books all over the world, from the US and Brazil to Japan.
