People in Rome (1999)

People in Rome (1999)

Rome as a capital town is always busy. There exist 4 rush hours: in the morning (before nine o’clock), at lunch (after 12 o’clock), after lunch (after three o’clock) and in the evening. This was typical for the last century and has been changing within the last two decades.

Besides the rush hours you may watch people relaxing, waiting for something (for example for the bus) or simply practicing their social contacts.

Chating and wathching the environment

People like to talk to each other in Rome . Often they are using their hands heavily gesticulating, sometimes they stand beneath each other watching their environment.

People at work like to go home for lunch. In the 90’s of the last centuries the traffic situation was bad and the lunch at the bars not so far developed. People who could not go home for lunch rested during lunch time.

The pavilions of the slaughterhouse were built between 1888 and 1891 by Giacchino Erosch to supply the people of the permanently increasing town with meat.

The slaughterhouse was considered to be among the most important of industrial buildings, because of its modernity and the simplicity of its structure and internal organisation. More or less it was a kind of factory, well supplied with technical equipment to work in a production line.

Today, the area is being revitalized and dedicated to a cultural center with exhibitions, rehearsal rooms  for musicians and to the new museum of contemporary art.
