the narrow alley is packed solid with kids of all ages happily slurping away. getting a cone at giolitti’s gelateria is a true roman tradition well over 100 years old.
few would argue that italy has some of the world’s best gelato. and rome being rome, it has attracted italy’s most talented over thousands of years. so it is fair to say that rome offers some of the best that italy has to show off. today’s photo essay was taken in rome’s most celebrated gelateria, giolitti, smack dab in the heart of ancient rome.
people and balls and things caught mid-air. these images (or other similar ones) were first blogged several weeks ago, when i did not have much of a following. as a result, they have remained largely unseen, mostly unliked and scarcely commented. clicking on the captions below each image should (let it work, let it work…) get you to the original post.
thanks for stopping by
Today’s portfolio is a series on paper people looking out on Rome from posters and such.
It illustrates three current trends: street artists are increasingly photocopying artwork and pasting it on the walls rather than stencilling it in spray paint; Italy’s growing presence of foreign-born people; and of course Italians’ perennial and unending obsession with beauty.
Photographs taken in springtime 2012, rome, italy.
