This requires some explaination. While in Italy, we began to notice a trend in the population. The Italian male is an amusing species... we dubbed him "Rocco". When we got bored with the city we were in (normally because we hadn't read the guidbook), we would occupy ourselves taking pictures of Roccos. We called it "Going On A Roc-about". A good Rocco is well dressed, has sunglasses, a cell phone, greasy hair, and a female companion known as a "Roc-ette". A Rocco has a confidence about him that practically permeates the air. Oh, we loved a good Rocco. Sadly, the very best ones we saw only live in our memory... we never managed to get the camera out in time for the creme de la creme that Italy had to offer.
This page is our tribute to the Rocco's of Italia. You know who you are.
