The Metro is the most rapid and cheap way of getting inside a big city. In Rome, every day, about 750,000 people travel by Metro. The chaotic movement of the city here finds moments of suspense. For an indefinite period, in the faces of people you recognize expressions thoughtful, melancholy, sometimes dreamy. The peculiar underground motion, brings some big-city alienation. The dive in the underground creates the opportunity for a break of introspection designed to stop badly until the next race.
The people of the Metro becomes a cross-section of social substratum of the capital. Yet, in a disenchanted and dreaming vision at the same time, these people seem to emerge from a timeless past and a distant places.
