The love affair between Rome and the Hollywood stars is nothing new. The gallery of the famous American actors who literally got lost in the streets and the ancient suggestions of our capital is crowded with epic names, among which it would be enough to mention Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Kirk and Michael Douglas, Mary Pickford, Woody Allen, and dozens and dozens of other high-sounding names in the history of cinema.
But what happened a few days ago near the Colosseum is certainly one of the nicest episodes that the annals of the Rome-Hollywood relationship remember.
Tom Cruise, who is shooting the new episode of Mission Impossible in the streets of the capital, is notoriously a motors enthusiast and an excellent driver, so much so that he does not need doubles and stuntmen when he shoots the scenes based on chases and various stunts with car and motorcycle.
When the American actor saw the insanely cute BMW motorcycles supplied to our Traffic Police, he heard no reason: he wanted to try one at all costs, and our agents allowed him to do so.
The expression of joy, almost childish, on the famous actor's face tells much more than a thousand words.
