I recently spent a week with the Significant Other in the land of scooters, Rome and pasta. This has slightly cured in me that regrettable condition whereby all Italian sounds like someone ordering pizza with lots of toppings on.

Several sketches were made during this time. Let us open with the more apparently mundane subjects: for is it not the true task of art to find beauty even in such things?
