Treacherous Fashion

Cobblestones – uneven, smooth, slippery in the rain & treacherous to fashionistas. 2000 years old, laid down in the 16th & 17th centuries. The old cobblestones known as “Sampietrini” or “little stones of St. Peter’s”. 

The treacherous space between one another make them a Stiletto heeled woman’s worst nightmare. 

The spaces allow the soil to breathe and also adheres itself perfectly to the grounds shape. They are made from solid volcanic rock that welled up in the hills behind the city.  They have character. Each cobblestones is unique from blows of a chisel and they can withstand heavy loads of traffic.

Sadly Rome is in the midst of removing the cobblestones and paving the way.
