“I made a point of not taking out my ludicrously big, very conspicuous camera until I spoke perfect italian. if anyone was going to mistake me for a turist I could as well be prepared to prove them wrong.”

“in this foreign city, where pedestrian crossings have nearly faded into non-existence and no clock seems to work; where you can’t lean your head against the bus’ windowpane or trust traffic lights, I lie alone crying silently in the tick-less hours, wishing – always wishing – that my grief be washed away by the uneven tides of time.”

looking at the traffic in rome I wish I never need an ambulance to come to assist me – there is just no way it would make it on time. and at the same time traffic is the reason I cannot be sure I can completely avoid it…

an interesting designers project in rome, located in hip, low-key trastevere, proposes an utopic encounter between art and fashion. working side by side with different creators of the italian panorama, [temporaryLOVE] opens a new collection every now and then. the pieces (all for sale) range between clothing and accesories, to pictures.

the small shop is exquisitely decorated, matching each exhibition – for every time they open a new collection they inaugurate with an “apperitivo”: the hidden streets gets crowded with people drinking wine and biting on sweets and chocolate. the atmosphere gets very intimate and the exhibition is always worth taking a look at. the last one was entitled [GODsaveTHEpop], featuring works by [elioVARUNA] and [DeSiDeRiO].

you can find more information on this amazing proposal in their website or their myspace.

for those visiting rome, you can easily get to [temporaryLOVE] from piazza di santa maria in trastevere. the actual address is:

via dell’arco di san calisto 9 (beside piazza san calisto).
