Rome has some of the most interesting and historic street signs I have encountered. They are more than simply directional markers, they are living history and, in a way, observers of history. This portfolio is a collection of some of the street signs I’ve seen from my various “viaggis” to Rome between 2012 and 2015. Rome is, of course, the eternal city and everywhere you look there are signs of that from historic Roman ruins to even these street signs. I can’t wait to go back.
