This design choice completely took me by surprise the first time I encountered it (and if memory serves, that “first time” is in fact captured above). Who thinks like this, let alone architects — and then convinces someone to build — like this?! But I’m so glad they did. What a crazy, bizarre, unexpected, jarring, fantastic part of Rome. Like something straight out of a Neil Gaiman graphic novel, which makes me very happy indeed.
