(when i was looking elsewhere…)
seemed like the 60s was dating the 2000s
maybe some manga cartoons went for a walk in rome...
on their way to vatican
(coleseo, piazza del campidoglio, piazza san pietro and Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti (or spanish steps); roma, oct 2011)
i came for spartacus, god of the arena…
…i went to rome this october, for holidays. It was a very imposing experience (i could have used other adjectives like monumental or imperial, which seem perfectly meant for this, but it would be redundant). The richness they have in classical history is magnificent though, sometimes, may feel like there's so much that they gave up handling it….the language floats beautifully in our ears and the small gastronomic sample i had the opportunity to try tasted as good as i expected.
In the attempt to make to the most monuments, museums and churches as possible, i think i lost the time to find and appreciate part of "la dulce vita"…so i hope to return, to find the handsome roman citizens, try more pasta, relax and observe the piazzas….
