rome in 150 pictures part 2 is my second set of pics.
i was telling you we were walking towards a museum.
it was macro. we were not so impressed with the art. but we loved the space, the welcoming shade and the in-house restaurant we found on the roof.
hungry, we waited for macro 138 to open. and it was the best idea: they offered an awesome buffet lunch we took full advantage of, along with the knowing people working in the area. i don’t know where they worked but i can tell you they were quite stylish so we ate and watched the street style show.
walking again, towards another art museum. here, we were cutting through villa borghese.
this is the galleria nazionale d’arte moderna. we only passed it by.
and we made it to maxxi, the museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo housed in a building designed by zaha hadid.
what i liked best? the way its yard was full of local people and their playing kids. i had never seen this before!
this is an installation by japanese architect sou fujimoto.
and this is the best spot in the whole museum!
i love this pic of the 3 old ladies under the paradiso sign!
we started walking towards our next destination.
we went to see renzo piano’s auditorium in the nearby citta della musica.
on our way back to the city center, we came across a very good gelateria called neve di latte. it was really special!
back to trastevere, for a second time and for even better dinner!
we went to pianostrada laboratorio di cucina. it was crowded, noisy and delicious. and i loved it how it was run exclusively by women!
tomorrow, i’ll post one last time from rome and from italy: stay tuned!
