Rome/Trastevere experts... I gotta know what that thing is!

Jump to last reply

From the back windows of my Trastevere apartment... I can see a large circular structure. (My apartment is on Viale di Trastevere very close to Stazione Trastevere.)

Initially, I thought it was some kind of scaffolding, as it appears to be iron. However, there is nothing behind it. Ironically, hanging on the wall in the living room is a picture of this structure lit up in white lights.

Today, as I was going from Basilica San Paolo to the Cavour stop on the Metro B line, we appeared to pass pretty close to this structure. And, surprise, there appears to be an identical structure next to it, but shorter (maybe half the size of the first).

I have googled til my thumbs are raw.. I cannot find out what this is/these are. Can anyone tell me? Please??? :) Before I drive myself mad?

Grazie mille!
Paula
