Rome Unpacked

Rome Unpacked (2018)

To really understand Rome you must understand its people - or the 'mob' as they were known in ancient times. As Giorgio Locatelli and Andrew Graham-Dixon explore Italy's iconic capital, they are in search of the generations of ordinary Romans who have left their mark on the city's culture and gastronomy. Giorgio insists that they travel in true Roman style - by moped. They start their journey at the Trevi fountain, immortalised in Fellini's 'La Dolce Vita' - which itself featured countless locals as extras to capture the real faces of Rome. Giorgio leads Andrew to some of his personal favourite districts including Garbatella, Italy's first 'garden suburb' with its vibrant market stalls and village architecture and introduces him to the simplest Roman food. He also insists on showing him how Spaghetti Carbonara should really be made. In turn, Andrew introduces Giorgio to some of the most moving pictures by Caravaggio. They set out together to enjoy one of the great erotic masterpieces of Baroque painting. La Dolce Vita still exists, you just have to know where to find it.
