Years ago was in Rome, Italy, and got a paper copy of a city park, and went looking for map features. Using an orienteering control flag that a local orienteering fellow loaned me, went in and took some photos
. Some of the cave symbols were actually residuals of catacomb networks and other underground cavities
. The large underground man-made structure was a underground bunker
built for the Savoia monarchical family. The site as been recently restored and is now a tourist tour destination.
A random man-made object in the middle of a wooded area, revealed a story of a XX century military aviation pilot
. At the time, there was a considerable homeless population in the park, and while looking for features such as bridges, walls, cliffs, ruins, man-made features, caves, all in dense vegetation, it did happen to find traces of human habitation camps. In the following years, a strongmen-styled new mayor got elected, a couple hundred manpower units mustered, and at 7 AM the park was cleared of its homeless. Nowadays, some of the features, such as the area under the bridge or underground cavity or man-made structure, are all fenced off by metal bars or wire fence, and no longer accessible.
On this rainy Sunday morning, found these photos and brought back memories. Enjoy.
