The Passenger: Volume 08 - Rome

ISBN: 9781787703544 (PB - EN)

To the problems faced by all large capitals, Rome has added a list of calamities of its own: widespread corruption, the resurgence of fascist movements, rampant crime. A seemingly hopeless situation perfectly symbolised by the fact that Rome currently leads the world in the number of self-combusting public buses. However, if we look closer, this narrative is contradicted by just as many signs that point in the opposite direction. The majority of Romans wouldn't consider "betraying" their hometown, and the many newcomers are often indistinguishable from the natives in the profound love that binds them to the city, leading to a lack of the mass emigration. Rome is a place of contradictions, yet to understand Rome and "fix" its problems, we should consider it a normal city, "not unlike Chicago or Manchester." Only, incomparably more beautiful.
