Metro C: Work in Progress
Lavori in corso is the name of the game in many areas of Rome where the metro C construction has left barrier and tape up for years. Here in Pigneto, for instance, I’ve never seen the stretch of the via del Pigneto where this photo was taken without these tell tale signs of construction. Just to give you an idea, there is a piece of graffiti on one of the yellow barriers that is dated 2007, so they’ve been there for at least that long. I always think about how if I lived in one of the apartment buildings overlooking this stuff I’d be so annoyed that that was my view for years. It will be quite a shock to actually see the area without all that stuff! The latest news is that one of the stops on the Metro C will be cut due to a lack of resources and that the subsidiary line B1, should be up and running in 2011. Vediamo!
