I could never buy my food in the cool and perfect indifference of a supermarket, which is why I’m always keen to explore a different farmers’ market in town. I like it when the nose-tingling aroma of spices mixes with the smell of freshly slaughtered meat, baked goods and unique cheeses. I breath in all those aromas while walking in the dense, colourful throng, with my huge ‘market bag’ swinging into people’s legs and getting fuller by the minute.

Last week was hectic; at one point I just needed to get away from the chaos of the town centre and enjoy a relaxing walk somewhere not so far away, somewhere I could have reached with less effort than a proper get-away destination, maybe a place along a river, with a beautiful park and nice alleys to simply get lost.
That’s how the area of Pietralata and Montesacro came up to my mind…
