The whole city looks like a museum

When I was at the Pantheon for the first time many years ago I got the strangest sense that it was fake, built by Cinecitta, the huge Italian movie studio, for a film. Maybe that comes from seeing so many photos of famous sites long before you actually see them. A similar feeling came when I watched the live TV coverage of the World Trade Center after it was hit by the first plane. It had all the look and feel of a blockbuster Hollywood action movie. Absolutely convincing special effects.

heh...that reminds me of the first time I saw a big-screen HD tv. They had a football game on. "Whoa... the picture's so good that it looks like a video game!"
