A few words about myself

thank you for visiting my website!
I was born in 1946 in Alexandria (Egypt). My family moved to Italy when I was a child and I grew up in Florence. I remember visiting the museum of Firenze com'era* (Florence as it was) and being very much impressed with the changes which had occurred over the centuries. I believe my interest in fitting into the past the monuments and the buildings of a city started then. This is a picture of myself at the time.

I worked for ExxonMobil's subsidiaries in Italy and abroad for more than 35 years. I am now fully devoted to improve my (purely amateurial) website. I live in Rome in S. Saba.
I will be glad to get any comment you feel could help in improving this website at romapip@quipo.it or romeartlover@hotmail.it. You may wish to have your name in its Hall of Fame!
