Crossing the river

Just like the river Styx, crossing one of the Trastevere bridges around the Isola Tiberina can sometimes seem like taking you to another world or another life after the hectic Piazza Navona or Piazza Venezia.

We had visited the Museo di Roma to see the photgraphic exhibition Donne di Trastevere by Emilio Gentilizi (1971-1972) and I came out no more talented an amateur photographer but completely snap happy !

A beginnning ?

Near the hospital, this dog struck me as looking a little like the she wolf who suckled Romolo and Remo in the story of the founding of Rome

Another famous fontana

The fontana in the Piazza Santa Maria di Trastevere. Quiet during the day and busy at night, this area escaopes the graffiti afflicting the walls of the feeder streets around the piazza.

Lungotevere

This colourful building is on the riverside, the Lungotevere Raphaello Sanzio (Santi)

Via della Scala

This is on (or beside) Via della Scala, it is difficult to take a shot without graffiti in view somehere!

Via della Lungaretta

Via della Lungaretta is the main thouroughfare for reaching Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere.

With light and shade, here it was the colours of the graffiti itself that caught my attention

When window boxes go bad

This is off Via della Lungaretta, a very esoteric bric a brac tapestry hanging from each of the upper windows.

il Cinema Italiano

To end at the start.....the cinema in Piazza Sonnino is the first thing you see for may people if you take the tram from over the river
