The hot spot


This is a picture from Via dei Condotti watching the church Trinità dei Monti and the big "obelisco" , roman imitation of egyptian one built during imperial period.
The obelisco represent the connection between the church and the big famouse perron where thousands of turists sit every day of every year warming under the hot sun of Rome!
The church is restructuring and so big spot (the versace one is now evident) are mounted on the face of the building. Here in rome ,the covering with big photo during a building restructuring is become an important business!!!! Many ancient buildings ...many restructurings...many big surfaces for spots = money
