When De Giorgi reached Rome in 1946, the city was on its knees. First of all, it was hard to reach, as the railway lines were so badly damaged. Then there was political instability and poverty; the entire infrastructure had been destroyed and public transport was almost non-existent. It was difficult to move from one end of the city to the other. All this notwithstanding, Ennio was happy because he had found a stimulating atmosphere in the capital, on account of Mussolini attempting to gather there the best university professors in Italy.
