David Byrne (via Infoservi) riporta la sua esperienza in un hotel romano dal design talmente moderno da risultare impacciato e ridicolo.
Riporto le conclusioni di Byrne:
Have the Italians sacrificed some part of their future in honoring and maintaining their glorious past? Am I being cynical? (I would certainly rather see ruins than block after block of ugly, concrete apartments!) The Italians must, I imagine, feel hamstrung by their past, which must justify in their minds the escape from the past represented by the ugly apartment and office buildings that fill these cities outside their historic zones.
Update: l’hotel citato dovrebbe essere questo e si trova accanto a Termini.
