Teens Gather



We figured these Roman teens were on a field trip to the Museo della Civilta' Romana, located in EUR in one of those massive, 1940-ish buildings beloved by Mussolini and the Fascists.  The huge entrance door (also characteristic of monumental Fascist architecture) is at right, and an enormous column, signifying the building's--and the regime's--link to the ancients, is at left.  We liked the gendered way in which the teens had arranged themselves.   Bill
