Muri Romani is a somewhat radical type of documentary. In appearance, it is utter simplicity. For example, the image of a patch of wall in Rome, today. As one watches, the wall seems to change, invisibly, without technical means. The sound is a collage of street sounds: motorinos, bells, people talking, trams, and sirens -- the daily sounds of central Rome.
