Today I went to the Vatican, the location of the 1960's Rome Olympics, and the MAXXi Museum designed by Zaha Hadid. The two buildings we saw from the Olympic site were both engineered by Pier Luigi Nervi - Stadio Flaminio and Palezzeto Dello Sport. The buildings were suggested by one of my UW professors, John Stanton, and one of my supervisors at Simpson, Gumpertz, and Heger. It has been an exciting couple of days, and I am excited to write more about my last day in Rome. However, I am getting ready to say ciao to Rome and buongiorno to Florence, so keep checking DCI and HDG's travel blog to find out more about my engineering adventures as I travel across Europe!
