Rome Railway Station


The Metro gate at the Railway Station in Rome "TERMINI". It's the sqare outside the entrance to the station and stop for all the bus which start for the city. The station is also the house for hundreds of people and 10 people are dead in the last 2 weeks for the strong cold. Yesterday a celebration in memory of Modesta Valenti , a woman dead some days ago and who lived in the station.

It's almost shocking to see pictures of the colisseo and Termini stations without anybody around. There were so many people when I was there in October.

Sorry about these poor people dying of cold. You'd think by now there would be a better system in place for homeless people.

By the way, you might want to check the settings. Every time I post to your blog, I get an error message from your mailbox delivery. Good luck working that one out :)

That's sad to hear. Not being originally from Europe, I didn't know that Rome was ill prepared for really cold weather.

ciao joe, thanks for your message, i'm happy to reciprocate. it's funny, this photo of termini shows exactly where, three years ago, i bought the belt i'm wearing today for 12% of the price that you pay for the same belt in Switzerland! It's a good belt, Italian leather. Salude di Berna!

stavo per cancellare automaticamente il tuo commento sul mio blog, poi mi sono incuriosita.. bella idea, belle foto... fanno bene per chi come me è distante.... mi fotografi il laghetto dell'Eur prima o poi? (so che non è il posto più bello in assoluto, ma mi aveva colpito...)

That's too bad about the deaths. However, this is a great picture!
