The Dance of Two Geniuses

Bernini and Borromini, two luminaries of their time, began their artistic journeys in harmony, only to find their paths diverging due to contrasting visions and temperaments. Their spirited competition and occasional collaborations sculpted the very essence of Rome's architectural splendor.
