The Low Season

36. Francesca (Rome)

June 17, 2020

When we spoke to Francesca in early May, Rome had just entered Phase 2, meaning citizens were finally allowed to venture more than 200m from their doorsteps. From too many tourists to none at all: we talk about whether a city designed to be looked at can exist without admirers.

Conversation from May 5th 2020.
