The modern Rome spreads around the historical center in a chaotic maze.
Almost all excavations done reveal the presence of new archaeological
remains of the Ancient Rome that need to be checked by a special commission.
As a result, new plans for building have to be revised several times and
approved before construction can begin.
Decade after decade Rome expanded, following various zoning laws which
were different for each neighborhood. The residential and the populated
areas are intermingled in a sort of mosaic, which is difficult to describe.
The traffic is chaotic and the orientation is very complicated. Many Romans,
tired with the stress of the city, have begun to think of more pleasant
places to live. Many foreigners, on the contrary, are fascinated by the
beauty of Rome and only desire a job and a roof in the eternal city....
Rome is slowly changing.
