Pigneto: New Home
The title of this blog is a bit deceiving, as this house is obviously not “new,” and it’s not mine either. However, I am making a bit change and moving to a new place in Pigneto, so this is fitting and will give me a chance to explore the neighborhood photographically in a deeper way. Part of the reason I was attracted to this neighborhood is that it is one of those pockets of traditional Rome that still exists, though, as I’ve written previously, it’s also a dynamic area that’s changing rapidly and has an interesting mix of old school Romans, immigrants, and young people. I love the post-war architecture you’ll find here, such as this amazing house and the area was used extensively for filming during the Italian post-war cinema. If you want to learn more about the area, read this very informative PDF found on the American University of Rome’s website.
