Roman Buses

Public transport isn’t very popular in Italy, and this is even more true in Rome. The Italian capital is served by two subway lines, with a third one, metro C, still under construction. There are some surface trains, and an enormous number of buses. This work doesn’t want to document public transport in Rome. Neither to search for peculiar faces to portrait. The main focus of this work is on people moving in a large metropolis, commuting in one of the oldest city in Europe.

Passing by monuments or suburban apartment blocs, most of the time without even noticing the difference: because living in a place could weaken the ability of seeing the beauty in it.

This series inspects the relation between a place and the people moving in this place. The relation between a complicated city and its inhabitants.
