I am a late-comer among the many thousand of Germanic tribes that have crossed the Roman limes and streamed into the city of Rome.
Born some 70 years ago under the thick smoke of the steel mills and the coking factories along the Ruhr river in Germany, I have lived the last 30 years in Rome, the city I discover every day better with curiosity and awe particularly when I can do this in company with open-minded visitors who are ready to confront themselves with the witness of fellow humans over the last 3000 years, expressed monumentally in stone, marbel,colour, trying to answer in their own way problems, questions, and mysteries that remain open.
Rome, a city of the past? Yes, of a past which is not at all past.
