Wednesday night at Piazza di Spagna

One of the benefits of living close to the city/center in Rome is that if there is something going on in the great capital, you are only a bus or metro ride from all the action.

This past Wednesday, the SLAs let us know about a showing of Roman Holiday at Piazza di Spagna. Me and two friends took the metro and after missing the stop and having to take a tram and a bus to make up for that mistake, we arrived at the Spanish Steps.

It was my first time visiting the beautiful Piazza, and I was blown away by the grandeur of it. There was a full moon shining directly over the steps and the soft light illuminated the space with a bluish hue. A little way to the left of the steps, there was a large screen projecting Roman Holiday with Italian subtitles. There were rows and rows of people in chairs in front of it and those who had not gotten a chair crowded around.

The movie had only been playing for a couple of minutes, and after a while of looking, we were even able to find seats! I had never seen the movie before and being able to recognize all the different places in Rome that were portrayed in it was very exciting. At the end of the movie, we walked back to the bus stop, hopped on and got back to the JFRC. All in time to finish my Italian homework, and go to bed.
