Currently Viewing – Roman Holiday

I don’t usually go in for souvenir tees, but this one I had to have:

It’s pretty easy to find Roman Holiday souvenirs in Rome, mainly calendars and postcards.  But there’s at least one shop that sells nothing but Vacanze Romane items – totes, shirts, magnets, wall hangings and on and on.  It seems a bit odd that over 50 years after the movie was made, there is still such a market for it.  After all, many movies have been made in Rome, and I found no La Dolce Vita, Gladiator, and or even When in Rome (with the Olsons) trinkets.

Must be the fashion transformation fantasy!
