Ohhh…! Trajan’s Column for a start; the lateral arches are reminiscent of the facade of S. Pietro (a weak feature of the design imo); the dome S. Maria del Populo (or La Sapienza – but not S. Pietro);the flattened ‘onion’ domes over the lateral towers S. Carlo alle Quatro Fontane – but I’ll need to think about the rest; good question. The main facade arrangement doesn’t look Roman at all, more like a Palladian villa.
My only visit to the Karlskirch ended in acrimony; having been charged to get in, I discovered the place to be full of scaffolding (I see some of it’s still there); true to national stereotype I demanded – and got – my money back!
