Gazometer & C.

The Ostiense district with its industrial monuments, the Gazometro and other structures, is becoming a very characteristic place.  The large open-air cages of gazometers are gaining importance in the city's skyline, almost competing with the beloved Coliseum.  The analogy of the form and the contrast of the materials make these objects of the architectural icons, empty of human presence, transparent to the sky and to the clouds.
