A. Ars Ardor Forma Amor
A. I'd like to go out for beers with Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Titian, and watch them argue. I'd go out with Bernini and Caravaggio, but I think they'd wind up punching me.
A. Wandering through Rome, alternating visits to favorite masterpieces in Roman churches with visits to favorite caffes, in a sort of "cappuccino and Caravaggio crawl." I take a perhaps unholy degree of pleasure in visiting churches to look at the art inside, and the only thing that could be better than that is eating great food and drinking great coffee between visits.
A. Villains always tend to be more interesting than heroes, but I like characters who are simultaneously heroes and villains. See how I managed not to answer the question?
