Unique works of art

It is difficult but still not impossible to find some great works of art on the sidewalks in Rome, Italy. These artists can lay on the asphalt for hours and sometimes days copying great masterpieces as the one I found today. If you will keep an eye always open you could see one even in Florence sometimes. In the local dialect, in Rome, they are called: “Madonnari” from the Madonna because at the beggin they were mostly copying paintings with the Vergin but today they are freeing their art’s spirit.

Small note: if you will find them working, please, give them a coin, a lot of people stops and takes pictures but then no one gives them a dime and I trust this is really unfair. Thank you very much.

Ice cream

Well I need to admit that the best ice cream shop in Rome is not far away from where I live, actually it is in my neighborhood: Riva Reno. Situated 10 min. from downtown.
