  Piazza del Popolo during celebrations
by shivan

Roma has won the 2000-2001 Italian Championship, after 18 years of waiting.

On June 17th, an estimated million people filled roads and squares in Rome celebrating the victory, parading with flags, motorbikes, scooters, carrying flags and sometimes dressed as ancient centurions.

The party lasted all the night and for the upcoming 7 days and nights. The city traffic has been partly paralyzed. I'm also proud to say that nobody has remained injured or got jailed during the party.

Some days later a big concert took place in Circo Massimo (an ancient Roman arena in Rome) with 1,2 million people attending.

Here are some shots of that day, courtesy of Carlo (for more please contact my friend Carlo).

This is Piazza del Popolo on june 17th
