This is the day that Rome was built

My love for Italy only expanded after visiting Rome. Seeing the city and travelling the sites, it was phenominal. Experiencing the art and culture of the whole area was mind blowing. In particular, seeing church steps that were worn down from the millions of feet that had used them, doors that were older than the European history of our country. The Colosseum left a lasting impression on me, and using the photos I took and memories I had, created this work.
