What does Rome sound like in the rain? Tiffany and Katy take a walk through the soggy streets of Rome, from Trastevere to Campo de' Fiori, capturing the sounds that you might not notice: raindrops falling in a puddle, water rushing through an underground drain, birds chirping as they seek shelter from the storm. As a seasoned radio producer, Katy hears sounds other people don't notice. Tiffany is just learning to. Join them on an aural discovery of Rome in the rain.

Plus: they attempt to answer the age-old question: what do the umbrella-sellers do with the umbrellas when it's not raining!

Bonus interview! Tiffany is convinced that Italians hate the rain. She interviews some Italians in Campo de' Fiori about why they hate the rain so much...their answers may surprise you!
