Romes orange trees

Always amazes me that Rome is full of orange trees in full fruit at this time of the year. The Via Veneto is lined with them.For a Scot it seems quite exotic to have citrus fruit growing in a city centre but for the Romans they aren't even worthy of comment. Came across this marvellous little art deco parish house near the Defence Ministry - it would be quite at home in Austria or Slovenia but is an altogether alien presence in classical Rome.
