Il romano secondo Touring Club

Il romano non vi dirà mai: “ah, io non posso stare senza far niente!” Una domenica per lui non sarà mai una giornata vuota, nemmeno se dovesse riempirla soltanto d’ozio e di libertà solitaria.

A Roman will never say: “I can’t stand having nothing to do!” For him a Sunday will never be an empty day, not even if only filled with sloth and solitary pursuits.

– Manlio Lupinacci, Qui Roma. Milano: Touring Club Italiano. 1970.
