Roman Aesthetics

The Italian government is giving fiscal incentives for the ecological amelioration of buildings. Anxious to take advantage of the bonus, now Rome is full of condominiums covered in scaffolding such as the building across the street from where I live.

The other morning I noticed two young women on the scaffolding restoring the frescoed frieze full of doves and plants. It was exciting to see them working.
