Urban Portrait – via del Tritone
This pedestrian underpass has been turned into a bookstore. A lot of these underpasses were built in the 1960s but almost all the ones I’ve seen are either closed and look like a garbage dump or are turned into some sort of store. The idea of the underpass is nice, but like many things here, the city doesn’t keep them well maintained so they become disgusting and dangerous and then must be closed. At least some are being put back to use, even if it’s as a store and not the original purpose.
