I’M STAYING IN ROME, EVEN WHILE IT CRUMBLES

Recommended Posts

Here's an article from two years ago, offering hope for the future despite uncertain times. It still gives hope even today:

 

WHY I’M STAYING IN ROME, EVEN WHILE IT CRUMBLES 

A British Novelist Will Remain in the Eternal City Because of What Its Past Can Teach About Surviving the Present

Quote

 

When I tell Romans I have been a resident of their city for the last 16 years and have no desire to live anywhere else, they’re often a little baffled. “But why?” they ask, looking a touch sorry for me. “We’re all trying to get away.” 

It’s true that Rome, which has never been an easy place to make a living, is struggling these days. The economy is stagnant, I’ve never seen so many homeless people and beggars on the streets, and many Romans look visibly frustrated. It’s no wonder that populist parties are riding high.
