Rome was not built in a day
Architecture. The full force of the word hits you when you set your eyes on the magnificent piazzas in Rome. Standing testimony of the sheer power of man's creation.
The half broken moon towering over the half broken Colosseum in complete symmetry.
The silent Pantheon speaking volumes of historical magnificence.
The fountain Trevi gurgling with the wishes of people who pay a penny for their thoughts.
The powerful Piazza Venezia, encouraging a Renaissance of thoughts.
I could almost imagine the place some hundreds of years back. The buildings basking in the resplendence of the haughty emperors. The crowds cheering the gladiator. The horses trotting across the Forum.
And now, I know why people say that Rome was not built in a day.
