Caption

The sopraelevata is an elevated sector of the Tangenziale est highway in Rome.
Also called the "nightmare road".
A fascinating place indeed, with dramatic lights and dynamic perspectives, but reason asks (and people living at same level of the traffic too) that this "monster" should be destroyed.

The new Rome Municipality's urban design is to bring down the highway, but waiting until all problems related to the reuse of the area and the growing of the traffic are resolved, there are some monster's friends who have alternative ideas for the sopraelevata.

The point where I shoot the panorama has the peculiarity to be an intersection of ways and transports: the highway is passing on top, in front ( behind the wall) there's a railway, in the back a tramway deposit, under a motorbike! ( the only reasonable transport in Rome!)
