Various doors from Monteverde, the part of Roma that hosts me on a regular basis.
Let me introduce you to the community. It’s closest to New York that I’ve ever seen, and I haven’t even seen that. Very much lived in, various ethnicities, restaurants, small shops, bakery – the city as it once was, before shopping malls took over. With an occasional robbery, burning car, fly-by of green parrots, inquisitive seagull in the middle of the road, alarms, shouting – things like that. An Italian city. All photos in this post were taken this Sunday. Right down to the last fun batch with Aristocani, possibly a favourite.
Here are some of the doors that I observe on a monthly basis. I’ve posted the first one already but this is a better photo.
The ones below (not really doors and yet they do open!) I can only observe on Sundays when the shops are closed. And they always make me smile.
