Charming Rome in black and white


Rome.... A winter sunny day in January, a walk through its streets and squares, simple shots of life on a quiet monday morning. In black and white to better concentrate on the mood the pictures  aim to inspire

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)






Best water in town from La Barcaccia fountain in piazza di Spagna








Wow!!! The Church!!






Break from work in a restaurant





.... same break!






Spanish steps among people






Selling shelter from the sun!






Just seized the right moment!






Behind the lady....the Pantheon!






Resting on a statue of the Pantheon fountain





Jonathan selling his paintings in Piazza Navona






Jonathan: so many years spent here selling paintings. Everybody knows him in Rome, and it's always nice to chat a bit with him when I pass by






Patient chinese art in Rome





New busker in town






Monna Lisa on the road!
