Roman landscape, especially in the suburbs, suffers savage land erosion and building speculation.  Human dimension is lost in futuristic buildings and old structures, cement blocks and unfinished roads. Black holes and multitudes of levels and planes create an incongruous no-man land, with no direction to take.
