Buon Compleanno Roma

According to the accepted calculation my beloved Roma is 2765 years old today. Though the actual year is much disputed almost all traditions agree that the city was founded on April 21, the day dedicated to Pales, the goddess of shepherds.

Though the music is a bit overblown the images on this slideshow capture so much of what I grew to know and love, though only my own photos could capture what I love most about the city - the people I care about so deeply there.

Happy Birthday Rome - I'm sorry I can't be there for the party but you know I am there in my heart.

21 April - 1926: Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born at her maternal grandfather's London house: 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair.
