    Rome Local Customs

    Everywhere you go in Rome, you can see spot these water fountains called "nasoni" (big noses) because of the shape of their spouts.

Torone is a special type of candy -- in Australia the closest thing to this flavour would probably be the bulgarian rock made by Daryll Lea.

  • The Festival of S Giovanni -- Formia

    Formia has quite a supply of different lighting. This castle set was used for the festival of S Giovanni in 1998. The same image is placed at regular intervals the whole way up the main thoroughfare in Formia. In this case via Vitruvio holds the most decoration, and the market place has different ones.
