AS Roma vs. AC Milan

"It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place," wrote Shelley, not long before he drowned and was buried here.

"Rome’s Non-Catholic Cemetery possibly contains the highest density of famous and important graves anywhere in the world, the final resting place of the poets Shelley and Keats, of many painters, sculptors and authors, dozens of diplomats, Goethe’s only son, and Antonio Gramsci, a founding father of European Communism, to name a few."

- The Protestant Cemetery’s Visitors Centre

Located down the hill from my place in Roma. A relaxing, beautiful place to visit. You’ll often see Romans (or visitors) reading, drawing, or writing on wooden benches.

Firenze

Here are some photos of Firenze, beyond the museums. Crossing the Arno (the river that runs through the city) there are some magnificent views of Il Duomo and the Tuscan hills in the background. Bistecca alla Fiorentina was an extra rare giant steak Saul and I split at one of Francesco’s (our assistant director and good friend) favorite spots. Saul also rocks the turtleneck below.

Febbraio

Things just seem to work here. Street signs look like this (below). Trash cans have a nice aesthetic. Things that most wouldn’t even bother to make look nice, just seem to look nice.

Silver Lake in Roma

Below are pictures from the Local Natives show in Roma. They are a band from Silver Lake, California that have just released their debut album Gorilla Manor. It was fun to see a familiar band while abroad. I found that the venue was mostly filled with europeans (not many american or english speaking people). It was refreshing to hear good live music again, for a cheap price (8 euro) at a lively Roman venue. You can listen to their single “Airplanes” below.

For now,

Ciao.
