Next Episode of Rome Unpacked is
Andrew Graham-Dixon and Giorgio Locatelli's latest Italian adventure brings them to Rome in search of the greatest food and art that they can find off the beaten track.
Giorgio Locatelli and Andrew Graham-Dixon explore Italy's iconic capital, discovering the generations of ordinary Romans who have left their mark on the city's culture and gastronomy. 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. In turn, Andrew introduces Giorgio to some of the most moving pictures by Caravaggio, in what was once the city's foremost church for poor pilgrims.
Andrew Graham-Dixon and Giorgio Locatelli continue their exploration of Rome off the beaten track. In search of its Papal, Renaissance and Baroque history, they discover that it is visible all around them. As well as marvelling at the mosaics in the 12th-century Basilica di San Clemente, Andrew takes Giorgio to its deepest basement and an ancient Roman schoolteacher's classroom. Then it is on to a true architectural and civic wonder - the vast Testaccio Slaughterhouse.
