Piazza Vittorio, Rome
July 5, 2012
First shooting early this morning for a project on the garden of Piazza Vittorio in Rome with the neighborhood committee. The 19th century garden, located in a multi-ethnic area of the Esquilino, is a public park where local people spend a lot of time. From Tai-chi in the morning to cinema screening late in the evning, it is always busy. There is also the magic door, built in the 17th by Marquis of Pietraforte on the site where, according to the legend, an alchemist found the secret for producing gold.
I will go back a few times in the next months to take pictures and shoot a short film about the place.
