George Costanza Rome


This post is dedicated to my Ozzie friend Tanya who is a big Seinfeld fan.

Rome surprised me in many ways.  The Carbonara, the matzoh pizza, the in your face vendors turning into Orange Yogi man.  But the biggest surprise was the abundance of statues and religious figures posing in what I can only describe as George Costanza poses.  While the poses are indeed different than that infamous Costanza pose, that was the first thing that popped into my sick mind.  Can anyone explain this to me.  We are fortunate enough to be able to travel all over the world but I don’t recall ever seeing this.  And on daily basisItaly - 2013 1811

On the last day we even spotted this sign of a restaurant.  I think it confirms it

More statue and fountain images.  The last one is for momcat, the hardest working woman on Trip Advisor.

    Regarding the “pose”, have you ever visited an Etruscan museum that has funerary statues? If you live in NYC, they might have some at the Met. If not, the next time you are in Italy, take a look. Or try google. I can’t tell you the meaning of the “pose”, but I am inclined to think it dates back to the Etruscans.

    • We almost visited one in Volterra but ran out of time. I will check the Met thanks. Have to know the meaning..

  5. I died over the captions and the title. So funny!
