Caotic touristic Rome!!



A little bit far away from Woody Allen's  "To Rome with Love", Rome appears a bit confusionary and crowded these days of mild September. Not that easy to isolate a particular subject while taking pictures in our italian Babylon, but it is always interesting to walk among hundreds of people trying to search for good shots portraying every day's life here at this time of the year....




Vatican excursion






Centurions at work (most of them from India!)






Handicraft straw animals






Some music at piazza del Popolo (work in progress for the fountain of the square)

Musical Rome!


Summer 2015.   40 °C for nearly 2 months this year!!! Crazy!! Hell must be cooler!! But my guitar teacher/dear friend of mine and I decided to go shooting this video around the beautiful squares of Rome both to pay homage to the Eternal City and to promote his music. He is an excellent musician composing his own music for the instrument he loves: guitar. Following his performance you can see a little backstage showing a little bit of the making of this video. It's been a pleasure to help him in this project by filming him in my town. Hope you enjoy!! We really had fun making this, and ... more videos to come.....stay tuned!
