In these challenging times, it can be hard to get used to our new ‘normal’. From one day to the other, we’re all staying at home a lot more than we usually would.
EXPERIENCE ROME LIKE A LOCAL
This is not your typical guide to Rome. Here you will not find the touristic spots and the lists of “Top places to see”. Here you will find our insights into this beautiful city so that you can discover it through our eyes and experiences and so that you’ll be able to live in Rome as a real Romana! However, you do will find here best spots for breakfast, lunch, dinner, aperitivo and the best shops and things to do in the city of Rome. Welcome to the guide to Rome of Le strade di Roma.
If you always hang around in Rome’s city centre, wandering through the maze of picturesque streets and ancient monuments, it’s easy to forget that the city is much bigger than what you find within the old Roman walls.
Hidden away in the residential neighbourhood of Monte Mario lies a small workshop filled with colourful, ceramic beads, accessories and objects.
Hidden in-between masterpieces of the Roman Empire, lush baroque palaces and the most famous classic art collections of the world, Rome sometimes surprises me with a piece of modern architecture in an unexpected place.
When I shop for presents for friends, I always try to put in a little bit of extra effort to find something personal and unexpected that they will love.
Modern architecture in Rome fascinates me. Maybe because I like contradictions: at first sight, contemporary design seems so out of place between the beautiful, centuries-old palazzi.
Moving to a new city, I always love to explore its neighborhoods by looking at its street art culture. For me, it’s not just a creative expression by the artist, but often also a tool to understand a little bit more about the city itself.
I walked past MIA Home Design Gallery at least a handful of times before I finally noticed this beautiful design shop in the heart of Rome’s historical center.
