First things first, Musei Vaticani
Don't ask me why but I love photographing police officers. Remember the one I took in Masachapa?
Can you see my reflection?
Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vaticano
the ceiling inside the Basilica and I also saw this...
Piazza di San Pietro
Seeing the city from so high above was so amazing. I could see many of the famous spots of Roma.
The best shot I got of Pietà
La Fontana di Trevi
The fountain that has shaped my childhood dreams.
During the day...
and at night. Yes, I went twice. Actually, I went four times!
La Porta Portese
The Roman flea market and I found many treasures that I brought home with me.
He was the most interesting character that I met in Roma. He would not let just anyone buy his stuff. I don't understand why but he was extremely particular to who could even look at the vintage photographs that he was selling. I was part of the lucky few allowed to get near. I bought some amazing vintage photos for €20.
Yes, all of this was for sale.
Leaving the Fiumicino Airport (again) after a missed flight
La strada: compilation of shots while roaming the streets of Roma
I love the look of this man. I love and hate this McDonald's sign but then again, it is the very spirit of Roma that I love: the clash of the ancient with the modern.
Behind the Pantheon
And now, my absolutely favorite photo of Roma. It symbolizes all that I love about Roman culture and its inhabitants. If I think one photo I took can portray the spirit of Roma the way I see it, this one would be it.
Manco Roma...ma presto bellissima, siamo insieme.
