Bel ragazzo and I are moving house... After being harassed mercilessly by our current owner we are out of here - we have a contract until 14th August but that does not stop the owners daughter from sending me letters to move out, and as I write the mother is on the phone to the bel ragazzo... Dio Mio! they will NOT leave us in peace... Oh well, before I know it I can say goodbye to San Paolo and good bye to these annoying owners.
So where are we going? I hear you ask.
We are going to Garbatella - which I thought was a little grubby but upon closer inspection it is not such a bad area...actually very nice. Bel ragazzo and I have done some night time surveillance and it is a very quiet and safe place. Furthermore tour guide Leanne has done some investigation and realises Garbatella is quite famous on the silver screen (or at least television screen.)
The television show I Cesaroni is filmed there (not that I watch the show, but I will now) and there is an old movie Caro Diario in which Nanni Moretti drives around Rome on his vespa - and he goes through Garbatella which he describes as his favourite part of Rome.
I still am yet to find the 'beautiful' part but hey - I'll be living there so will have plenty of time to investigate and I cannot wait!
