and the bells have flown to rome

Possibly a bit too harsh in their criticism though it doesn’t seem like city authorities are even trying, Rome’s official Christmas tree has been described infinite sadness and much like Rome herself: full of holes and covered in rubbish. Even if it is put up in a time of austerity—which compared to other Italian cities (there’s a video at the link that really rubs it in) does not seem to be the time to demur from celebratory ostentation, thrifty by no means need be paltry. What do you think? I can imagine some charitable souls clambering into the courtyard to spruce it up.
