Christina Nguyen, 1977 | Impressionist Cityscape painter

I wake up, get up and walk through the day trying to keep my eyes open.
Sometimes I get obsessed with places and stories and I fall in love with them as if they had a soul which I think they do.

Tra le leggende che corrono, c’è quella più accreditata, la quale dice che, in caso di una sentenza negativa, il colpevole rischiava che la Bocca della Verità gli troncasse la mano, infatti dietro il mascherone era nascosta una terza persona che era d’accordo con il giudice.
La Bocca della Verità è un antico mascherone in marmo pavonazzetto, inizialmente situato all'esterno del portico della chiesa di Santa Maria in Cosmedin di Roma e successivamente murato nella parete del pronao con i restauri voluti da papa Urbano VIII Barberini nel 1631.
