Two images of curves. I had a third one, but its publication was forbidden by the curvy one.
So the first one is a detail of the interior of a huge hemisphere built almost 1900 years ago in the heart of Rome and still visible nowadays. The squares, only apparently contrasting with the theme, actually follow in dimensions and shape the curvature of the dome, and make it lighter, and not only to the eye. The building’s name is Pantheon, as it was originally a temple of all deities from emperor Hadrian’s times.
The second image is a bit more accidental, and is an indirect testimony that farmers in Italy do sometimes exceed their drinking limits.
