New sites to try...

We've added 4 new sites to our shared ones at the bottom of the sidebar on the right. We love these blogs/websites, and encourage you to sample them: is the best source (in English, maybe for Italians too) of what's going on in the city NOW. It's well-written, crisp and accessible... try it, you'll like it. - Jessica Stewart's photos, and choice of materials, are some of the best. period. - what can we say? Just go there - we like to think we share their quirky sensibility about this fabulous city, and their photos are magnificent. BTW, we "matched" e-cool's blog on the "maps" stenciled around the city (see e-cool's post of May 21 "Map Maker") with the map maker!! Matthew Hural (looking at camera + pix of some of his maps you can try to find around the city) at the American Academy in Rome is doing 21 of these, 17 down and 4 to go. (Also photo at top taken at Open Studios at the American Academy last night... couldn't resist the view.) - Maria Teresa Natale (of Rome) created and manages this impressive site on graffiti, most of it Italian. We plan to do a post on Maria Teresa and her work, but since we haven't done it yet, we must give her website a shout out and include it in our bloglist. I suggest you try the menu on the left and "gallerie a tema" and then just pick any "tema" (theme) - you don't have to know Italian or what you're getting to get good pix.
