It has always been my artistic purpose to inspire others to view La Citta' Eterna in a new way -- to portray her ancient beauty and authenticity, to reveal her infinite depth so that one can touch her texture, feel her glow, be in her presence. After almost two decades of roaming the back alleys, climbing her seven hills, and viewing the hidden treasures of Rome I can still turn a corner and be surprised by her architectural genius, the shape of her arches and cupolas and the sheer inconceivable notion that she still stands, sometimes in ruins, with her intensely hued crumbling walls, and her stratified depth of being.
