“Per trecentosessantaquattro giorni all’anno puoi restare completamente estraneo a Roma come città, viverci senza vederla, o peggio, sopportarla con fastidio. Ma poi, ecco, sprofondato nei tuoi malumori dentro un taxi fermo a un semaforo, all’improvviso una strada che certamente conoscevi ti appare in una luce e di un colore come mai avevi visto; a volte invece è una brezza delicata che ti fa alzare gli occhi e scopri altissimi cornicioni e terrazze contro un cielo di un azzurro da toglierti il fiato. Oppure è un’atmosfera sonora, una eco quasi musicale che ti vibra attorno magicamente in vasti spazi polverosi, disadorni, e tu avverti che si è d’incanto creato un contatto profondo, un sentimento di quiete che cancella ogni tensione.” F. FELLINI
