I am continuously surprised by how big they build things in Rome. I mean, everything is just huge. It's like the city was built for people twice as tall and large as those that actually live there. This picture was taken in just an average apartment building - it's somewhat deceptive, but look at the door on the far left to get the scale right for the picture. Likewise, the door to this hall is so huge that it's impractical to actually open and close, so they cut a human-sized door right in the middle. All of this contributes to the overwhelming feel of Rome as a whole.
