The Immaculata

Under the dome of the Immaculata is another dome, with four pillars. “That must mean something.” The dome is blue, mosaic, with matricies of gold squares for stars, and the pillars are pink marble, with pedistals and capitals of vines and grapes. Why should I sit, as I saw one young man sitting, with head down and silent, when surrounded by mysteries and intricacies of form?
