via del governo vecchio

This street is all about the people. But also home to vintage clothing shops, stylish boutiques, funky bookstores and great food.

gps + vespe

Did I mention how much I love riding in taxis?
I don't indulge that often, but lately I've had to rush around town a lot. Waiting for the bus in the scorching Roman sun only adds to the frenzy and frustration, so in the last few days I've been treating myself to the luxe pleasure of il tassì, as we call it here. While I stretch my legs in the air conditioned back seat, I take pictures.
I'm on taxis so often recently, that the other day I even bumped into a colleague who–similarly to myself–has left the movie business, and is now making a living driving a cab!
Lucky him, he gets to ride one every day.

in costruzione

The street where I live is undergoing a major pavement overhaul. The sidewalks fitted with new travertine marble, potholes filled, and the street grated, stripped, leveled and re-tarred. In this procedure, the old level was uncovered. I was surprised to see that under a thick blanket of gravel and asphalt, my street used to be paved in beautiful sanpietrini cobblestones. They have once again sadly been covered, though.
