2.02 Piazza della Repubblica

Known as the "Exedra square", the square named after the Republic was built in 1885 on the remains of the biggest Thermae ever existed in Ancient Rome: a building of 380*370 meters supplied by a dedicated aqueduct... A little return to the origins, substantially!

Love the reflections and especially the shock effect of the car plying through the water.

Awesome!

Love the B&W rendering and the 'submerged' car provides a master touch of veracity.

Car. Say no more.

@vignouse Thank you so much!
@chillen A solution also for the Roman traffic... ;-)

@domenicododaro is it true Domenico that there is a road in Rome where the risk of collision and accident is so high your car is uninsured when you drive on it? An Italian told me that once.

@chillen Oh, well, Grant: the risk of collision and accident in Rome is so high everywhere that the whole city should be banned! Just to give you an idea, the road leading to the Presidential Palace is qualified as a "bumpy road" on the street signals!
I think the information my fellow countryman (or countrywoman) gave you is not correct. Car insurance in Italy is mandatory by law. Neither car owners and drivers neither insurance companies may refuse to insure a car or to cover a specific area of the territory.

@domenicododaro thank you Domenico. I was fortunate to visit your fine city when I was younger. I remember taking a taxi and wondering if I would survive the journey. Your fellow countryman who told me the insurance story was from Napoli. I don't know if that is in any way significant.

@chillen Napoli is quite a difficult city, probably the first in Italy for car insurance frauds... and yes, a tour with a Roman taxi driver is something close to a rollercoaster adventure!

So completely superb!

You are so luck to have all this beauty around you even if the flood makes life unpleasant. Photography brings out the best from bad circumstances as you show.

@pickerandagrinner so very true! And it also allows you to create the circumstances... there's a demiurgic power in this...

What a most wonderful visual pun! Fav.
