A Return to the Stadio Olimpico

Just when I think we’ve got the Rome backlog of images broken, out leaps another set. The Stadio Olympico is covered in many places, but pondering the fact that such a massive amount of fascist material still survives, and is maintained here, is staggering, and a fascinating subject for discussion. It might appal many, but the rights and wrongs of its preservation, or destruction, are far from clear-cut.

A Museum on the Streets of Rome

As new adventures will shortly be following, we thought best to try and get through some of the final images to be recorded from the most recent adventure in Rome. These images, taken outside of the Mausoleum of Augustus, show a bizarre on street installation project, a museum of the street, an archive of the tourist perhaps, however you want to brand it, please enjoy.

Roma Part 3: A Different Take on the City.

Part 3 of 3 here, as the last of this Rome based trilogy is concluded. Some more obscure images of the city this time, as the more recent decorative elements of the city are considered, alongside some of the more political issues as well.

Graffiti found under a bridge in the southern part of the city. The lettering on ‘ROMA’ is particularly impressive.
Simpler graffiti overlooking the Circus Maximus.
A giant head overlooking the Circus Maximus.
Terme di Caracalla – carved into the ground by said site.
The voice of protest by the Forum.
A pet supply store north of the forum, complete with the owners cat in the window.

Roma Part 2: Somewhat off the beaten track.

Part 2 of 3 of photos in and around Rome. These selections offer views on the southern and northern most sides of the city, some Roman in nature, some quite a bit more recent, either way, these are some of the sites that don’t always find their way to the core tourists attention. Included are views of the ever epic city walls and gateways allowing for traffic in and out of the anicent city.

Roma Part 1: Conventional Rome

Part 1 of 3 of photoblogs in and around Rome. Nothing to do with Wales mind you, but a city always worth a look at. A selection here of more traditional and obvious features in the city to begin with.
