Fifteenth day of “Night Walking”.
Porta Portese, Rome, Pedestrian Alley.
Here’s one of the secret alleys which connects roads and areas of the neighbourhood which otherwise would be hardly accessible. Most of the buildings here are destined to offices and get quickly empty and lonely at night, when even the most overzealous employees have left for good. Lights do never switch off, as they work in tandem with the myriads of security cameras to dissuades the homeless who seek repair and the thugs who seek a diversive. After all, nights are unspeakably long and desolate where no people have homes. There may be light, but there won’t ever be the warmth of true human life.
