Sitting at a table in his favourite café in Rome, Giorgio De Chirico used to say: “This is the only place where one can sit and wait for the world to end”.
While waiting you may exchange a few words with other illustrious guests: from Stendhal to Goethe, Liszt or Bizet, Guttuso and Fellini. From the second half of the 1700s right up until the Dolce Vita years, Rome and its literary cafés have conquered everyone’s hearts. It’s easy to guess why. In a setting like the Eternal city, even the most ordinary daily routine acquires a different taste, satisfying all the senses and serving as inspiration.
There’s no better way to start your discovery of Italy than with a good coffee. Illy and Starwood Italy invite you to explore the flavors of Italy through a selection of recipes inspired by Florence, Milan, Venice and Costa Smeralda.
