Già, dopo il mio lungo e splendidamente faticoso giretto per States e dintorni… rientro senza sonno (o comunque ben rovesciato e fritto) nella mia Eterna Città, e chi mi trovo? Il nuovo uomo a via Veneto, piazzato da Obama! Non posso che scrivergli subito…Dunque:
As you can clearly see, the city has changed a lot (honestly I couldn’t say wether in better conditions or not).
I assume that you are really engaged in solving difficult problems and many new responsabilities. For all this I wish you the best and therefore to enjoy you’re staying in Rome, the eternal city.
On this occasion, and I’m strongly hoping to be heard this time, I’d like to ask you to be eager with our citizens who are going to surround your embassy daily. Could you please let the barriers (TRANSENNE) around the embassy building be removed from Via Veneto. From via Lucullo and via Sallustiana. I beg you, you’ll show a great sign of being opened towards the beauty of Rome and a good respect for the road network.
Thank you. Yours sincerly…
