  • Description

    Throughout Italy, gifts are exchanged by young and old on Jan 6, the day of Epiphany. In Rome the traffic police - not always so popular for the rest of the year - receive their fair share.

    At all the main road junctions in the city where there is a policeman on point duty, boxes and baskets filled with present pile up beside the guardian of the law, who - for once - shows no concern about the incessant honking of horns and hooters.

    A travelling circus - usually a headache for the local police because of many traffic jam caused by small herds of slow-trotting elephants - send artistes animals to pay their respects with handsome gifts.
