Tempus fugit: Roma

The omnipresence of three thousand years of mankind’s history in Rome is quite chilling. If you take your time and stop to listen, you can hear the remnants from the past millenia talk: they talk of the persistent will of the powerful to leave their dent in the universe each in their own time, century after a century; they talk of the enormous power & wealth it must have required to establish these monuments that still stand amongst us here today. And ultimately they also talk of the inevitable eradication of even the tallest monuments and strongest walls. They seem to be challenging the spectator: what will your dent in the universe be? And how long will it stand against the test of time?
