We did not arrive in or leave from Rome by train the last time I was there, but we needed a post office and the nearest one to our hotel was in Roma Termini, the city's central railway station. I'm glad we went there; the post office is located in the marvelous and newly renovated 1930s Mazzoni-designed wing of the building.
We entered the Yellow Mezzanine directly from Via Giolitti and I was immediately struck by the appealing lines and shapes of the ceiling. Then this ceramic wall art captured my attention.
Next I saw how soothing the indirect lighting was, followed by the light fixture designs themselves. I was able to take these two additional photos of the brick portico ceiling and arches before a security officer came up to me to tell me to stop.
I have since learned that the fixtures were designed by British light designer Miles Pinninger and were produced by the award winning German company Franz SILL that in recent years has provided the lighting for many significant public spaces. This did surprise me some because Italy has its own strong designers and manufacturers in the lighting industry, but I would guess that SILL's reflector technology won the day.
