The photographic series present the amazing diversity of ventilation grids, an ubiquitous element in the facades of historic Rome. Althouth this decorative ventilation grid is common in many countries in Europe, I haven't seen such an enormous diversity anywhere. The grid functions as cover for air ducts, but in contemporary chaotic streetlife it stands as a weird floral symbol out of context, a design attemp of domestic beauty covered by coats of paint, just a few inches above human flow.
