Possibly channeling a youth well spent watching late night reruns, David Rockwell envisioned a stage set for the 81st Academy Awards straight from the dazzling finale of 42nd Street wherein a woman’s face dissolves into a crescent moon.  And that would be almost as surreal as David Rockwell incorporating some paving ideas from the Piazza del Campidoglio.

Oh starry, starry (Oscar) night.

Cue the mirrors. And the Piazza del Campildoglio.

Is that New York in the background? Or LA?

Starlets are already anxious about stiletto-hostile stairs.
