10 Beautiful Spots To Take Photos In Rome

Rome. ROMA. The eternal city. One of the most beautiful cities in the world. Maybe the best one to visit: we have sun, delicious food, tons of history, nice people and, for a photographer, incredible spots to take pictures. I tried to write a list with ten beautiful places you shouldn’t miss in your roman trip, maybe it could be helpful…

Giardino degli Aranci

If you like panoramic photography, this is the spot you are looking for. A garden on the top of Aventine Hill (Colle Aventino, next to Circo Massimo metro station), where you can take beautiful picture of the city and declare your love to someone, as well! I suggest to go there during the sunset, where the atmosphere is really magic.

Back in Roma

[ENG] Here I am. Finally, after five beautiful weeks in the Southern Italy, I had to be back in Roma, in the warmest summer ever. It was a complicated period for my “relationship” with Roma, sometimes it’s hard to live here, but anyway I’ve decided to make a walk at sunset, to take some photos in one of the most beautiful spot of my city: il Giardino degli Aranci. Well, it’s been so important to me to remind how incredible can be this city and how magic is its light. I’ve just realized a new artwork for my series Urban Melodies and now I’m a little bit happier to live here.

[ITA] Eccomi qua. Alla fine, dopo cinque splendide settimane nel sud Italia, sono dovuto tornare a Roma, nella più calda estate di sempre. Era un periodo un po’ complicato per la mia “relazione” con Roma, a volte è duro vivere qui, ma al di là di ciò ho deciso di fare una passeggiata al tramonto, per scattare qualche foto in uno dei punti più belli della mia città: il Giardino degli Aranci. Beh, è stato importante per me ricordarmi quanto incredibile può essere questa città e quanto magica sia la sua luce. Ho appena realizzato un nuovo lavoro per la mia serie Urban Melodies e adesso sono un po’ più contento di vivere qui.

Story of a Picture – Traffic Jam

[ENG] Everytime I see a picture I can remember what I was doing there, sometimes I can also remember my feelings in that moment… Well, when I took this picture, “Traffic Jam”, I was in New York City. I just had visited the Museum of Modern Art in a late afternoon, when I decided to make a walk in the neighborhood. Finally I’ve walked toward Park Avenue, where I found a beautiful traffic jam (well, if we can consider beautiful a traffic jam!). I shot three pictures in the middle of the pedestrian cross with the 62th Street. The light just after the sunset was incredible: it was 5pm and there was an incredible shade of blue reflected in the buildings, on the windows, mixed with the lights of the cars in line. Maybe Pollock’s art, watched at MoMa just 30 minutes before, inspired me in some way: I was fascinated by that chaos. When I began my series Urban Melodies, these three pictures taken in Park Avenue were choosen by me to realize that kind of project I had in my mind. Well, It worked a bit, isn’t it?

[ITA] Ogni volta in cui osservo una mia fotografia posso ricordare cosa stavo facendo in quel luogo, a volte posso anche ricordare cosa mi passava per la mente in quel momento… Beh, quando ho scattato questa foto, “Traffic Jam”, mi trovavo a New York. Avevo appena visitato il Museum of Modern Art in un tardo pomeriggio, quando decisi di fare due passi in quella zona. Alla fine ho camminato fino a Park Avenue, dove ho trovato un bellissimo ingorgo di macchine (insomma, se possiamo considerare bellissimo un ingorgo!). Ho scattato tre foto nel mezzo delle strisce pedonali all’altezza della 62a Strada. La luce subito dopo il tramonto era incredibile: erano le 5 del pomeriggio e c’era un incredibile sfumature di blu riflessa nei palazzi, sulle finestre, mescolata alle luci delle automobili in coda. Forse l’arte di Pollock, che avevo visto al MoMa solo 30 minuti prima, in qualche modo mi ha ispirato: ero affascinato da quel caos. Quando ho cominciato la mia serie Urban Melodies, scelsi quelle tre fotografie scattate in Park Avenue per realizzare quel tipo di progetto che avevo in mente. Beh, un po’ ha funzionato, non è vero?

July 2017

July is ending and with it my holidays are ending… I spent this month in the southern Italy, the place where my family comes. It was not only sea and sun, but also a month full of photography (including a wedding). So, before to leave and be back in Rome I’m going to enjoy another week of italian sea and, as always, I’m going to post the best 10 pictures I’ve taken this month.
