Rome is full of new discoveries, and not all of them are visible!   

Pictures from 2006  show piazza Venezia exposed! It’s over 2 decades the city has been working on Metro C and improving their public transportation services. It can’t be easy when digging around ruins, are they all worth keeping? What is more important to people today? Efficiency or more ruins? Is Rome lacking more to see?

In the pictures you can see Piazza Venezia exposed. Today covered of course, is used to take selfies, and every year the city places a Christmas tree. But what is under the tree? Exactly!  Take a look at some pictures taken 2006 taken by Patrizia Di Gregorio.

“Work is continuing on the Metro C in Piazza Venezia. It will be another station-museum, after the one of San Giovanni that the city inaugurated in 2018.   Digging the galleries to bring the third metro line to the center of Rome, where  it will be admired by tourist and appreciated by commuters!

“Today in Piazza Venezia the construction sites that will serve for the construction of the future station are visible – explains the first town -: the consistency of the subsoil is underway, with core drilling and technical tests preliminary to the extension of the tunnel that will connect the suburbs to the heart of the city”.
