I missed one more observation regarding the Leonardo De Vinci Airport. In many previous posts, I have noted unusual aspects of different airports such as the glass enclosed display of things you should not carry on to a flight (Bejing), a life sized replica of a red fire hydrant decked out with turf so that travelling dogs can “hike a leg” (Charlotte), and the mammoth size statue of John Wayne (Orange County). Well, in Rome, among all of those shops and gates is the Smoke Box, a small rectangular shape cubicle with a roof designed for smokers. You can see my photo below (second photo, first one is in the terminal). Its capacity is 8 people, but I think that the maximum is closer to 12 if everyone stands real close to each other. The just a bit of haze inside made the inhabitants appear surreal, like something from a Stephen King short story or novel. In addition, no cigarette, no problem, just walk in and breath deep. The second hand smoke will do the trick.
