Along a stretch of one of Rome’s few large and ugly boulevards, Viale Trastevere, is a rather unremarkable wall. But this is where wild, impossible dreams have been granted. Believers only, please…
At one point in the wall there is a bas-relief Madonna – the mother of Christ, not the popstar (sheesh – how young are you guys?). If you are a believer, and if you know how to ask, she has been proven to grant even impossible prayers.
When this happens, you write a thank you note in stone (or plastic, or marker, or whatnot…) and affix it to the wall.
Hope this set of images is as surprising and refreshing to you as the wall is to me whenever i walk by it.
