LEGO vehicles take over the ancient streets of Rome

"How many among us would not wish to land by helicopter just beside the Colosseum?"

When you think of Rome, you think about romance, history, amazing architecture and delicious food, but not in a million years you will think about spotting a full-sized LEGO vehicle.

While the pictures might appear extremely real, don’t get too excited, because you’re not going to actually see them on the streets, as this whole thing is just a project carried out by Italian photographer Domenico Franco, who digitally added the LEGO cars there.

The project is called “LEGO outside LEGOLAND” and consists of a series of surreal pictures that will bring back some childhood memories for anybody that used to be a LEGO architect when they were little (yes, we all thought that).

“The aim is to transform ordinary contexts in extraordinary ones, thus compelling the toys to get out of the idyllic and politically correct landscapes belonging to their perfect and idealistic cities (e.g. LEGOLAND), with the result of instilling in them those vices, virtues and desires typical of human beings.”
