This is the view from the bedroom of my in-laws. Claudia and I lived for two and a half years in this flat, slept in this room, and I never noticed this view. I didn’t care about night landscape, maybe. Or I couldn’t bother to put my head out of the window. Whatever it was, it ends tonight. Tonight I care and I bother, because of the project, because there is always the need of a new shot.
We’ll stay in this place, sleep in this room, for the next three days. My in-laws are out of town, so we came here to let the moving company pack the last few things in the old flat, like the bed, the couch, and the TV system. By Wednesday we’ll move the whole family into our new place.
I have no idea what this building, plunged into the forest of Monte Mario, really is. I tried to figure it out before writing this post. Using google maps I located a building which looks a bit like the one and is rightly positioned to be viewed from the bedroom window. Using google streetview I gave a look at it’s entrance. There is a plaque, but it is impossible to read. The number on the gate, however, is clearly visible. I put the street name and the number on google: it’s the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China.
Jesus, am I allowed to post it’s photograph?
