I had a dream to never return.

("FLY" by Domenico Modugno)

I painted my hands and face blue.

Then suddenly I was abducted by the wind,

and I started to fly in the infinite sky.

Flying, oh, oh

Singing, oh, oh, oh, oh

Into the blue painted blue

I was happy to be there.

And I flew flew happily,

higher than the sun, and still higher.

As the world slowly disappeared far away,

soft music played only for me.

Flying, oh, oh

Singing, oh, oh, oh, oh

Come, come, come.

Oh-oh, a damned barrier. Bang!

Sorry. I don't speak English very well.

I'm from Roma. My job, as you can see,

is to see that the traffic move.

I stand up here, and I see everything.

All people. I see life.

In this city, all is a story.

See that young man over there?

He's a Roman, Michelangelo.

Oh, uh... Excuse me.

Um... Trevi Fountain?

- Uh... so it's two blocks...

- Uh-huh, two blocks...

- and then across the piazza.

- OK, and that's Piazza Mignanelli?

- No.

- OK, no. Piazza di Spagna is this... No?

- No. This is Piazza Venezia, right?

- OK.

Look, I'll show you.

Um... this is Piazza...

I don't... I don't know.

Uh, look, you know what?

I'm going that way, I can show you.

Thank you. Thank you so much.

You speak very good English.

That's because of my work.

I visit New York often.

Oh, that's where I'm from.

- What do you do?

- I'm a lawyer.

- And you're, let me guess, a tourist.

- For the summer.

- I'm Hayley. Hi.

- Hi. Michelangelo.

It's been an unbelievable summer.

We read about in all those romantic

novels, American goes to Rome,

meets handsome Roman at Trevi Fountain.

No, he's utterly adorable.

Now, Antonio and Milly

were also a young couple in Rome.

They married in the little town of Pordenone,

and came to Rome for their honeymoon

with plans to settle there.

And then there was that well-known

American architect,

concluding his vacation

with a few days in Rome.

And finally, we meet Leopoldo Pisanello,

an average Roman citizen of the middle class,

dependable, agreeable, predictable.

I think it happened so fast.

I can't wait to bring you home

and introduce you to my parents.

I can't wait to meet them.

- It is delicious.

- Buono, mama.

And what do you do, Hayley?

Uh... I'm self-employed.

I help clients find art.

My background is in fine art.

He's lawyer. I'm very proud.

All my children, I work night and day

so they get to education.

We want to meet your parents.

They come to Rome?

Oh... well, yes, as a matter of fact,

they're on their way.

Ladies and gentlemen, we're beginning our

descent into Fiumicino airport in Rome.

We may experience some turbulence.

Please keep your seat belts fastened,

and make sure all trays

are in appropriate position.

Great, turbulence!

My favorite!

No. You just relax and

stop clenching your fists.

I can't unclench when this turbulence...

You know I'm an atheist.

I don't like this. It's bumping.

The plane is bumping.

- I don't like it moves like that.

- I can't wait to meet her fiance.

You know he's a communist.

There's not even a communist party here anymore.

No, he's just very very left.

Hey, listen, I was very left

when I was his age too.

But... but I was never a communist.

I couldn't share a bathroom.

Ok... He's not a communist,

he's just a do-gooder.

What... what does it mean, "a do-gooder"?

Who believes not into

material possessions, you know.

What? Well, look,

if she's gonna marry an Italian,

I want her to marry somebody with,

you know, with material possessions,

with a yacht, with a couple of Ferraris,

with... with a villa in Sardinia, you know.
