Slightly off-angle, taken from the Via del Velabro, west of the Foro Romano. The Arco di Giano, misnamed as it is thought to be dedicated to Constantine rather than the god Janus, dominates. SJ

Rome? Grant's enterprise. Yes Roma, the EUR building put up during Mussolini's reign in the 30's, just south of the city.

Empty and barricaded. This is the Palazzo della Civiltà del Lavoro, south-east of the Metro station EUR Magliana. The other (west) side was seen in The Last Man on Earth. SJ
