CURIOSITY: 'Ruin Room' at the The Church of the Santissima Trinità dei Monti, Rome

On my next visit to Rome, I am determined to get into the closed order of nuns who in their convent have the 'Ruin Room' at Sta Trinità dei Monti, painted in trompe l'oeil by Charles-Louis Clérisseau c.1760 imitating a Roman temple which had become the residence of a Christian hermit - ref: In Ruins by Christopher Woodward, published by Pantheon Books.
