Fragile Images of Rome: Site Discovery and Metropolitan Experience in Sixty-Two Color Slides Cultural and urban philosopher Georg Simmel once claimed that an ambiguous contrast between silence and noise, between well-being and conflict pervades certain places in Rome. The present research project addresses Simmel’s hypothesis in an elaboration on sixty-two color slides from the 1970s — fragile analog images in which the human perception and the cultural appropriation of such city spaces come to the fore.
