A lot of wich is taken up by piazza Navona + Campo de'Fiori:
10 yrs ago before ever we lived in Rome we were having a coffee in Piazza Navonna + got swept up in a student protest that ended in violence:
We had slices @ il Forno in Campo De'Fiori (★★★★½) like we've done menny times before, eating it standing, hunched over so the oil drips onto the sanpietrini + then after washing our manos in the nasone. Far from a flowery meadow now Campo is famous for displaying food porn for turisti to take fotos of but dat no 1 can really afford to actually buy. The hooded Giordano Bruno is barely visible thru all the unsightly tents + selfie sticks, the statue on the spot where he was burned at the stake for having the gall to to think il moondough revolved round the sun. Our hero Bruno has a cameo in 1 of the Sound Furies songs, witch, insidentally the album un is forthcoming in exactly a week, on Dec 24... stay tooned!).
#VII, Regola, is the neighboring hood that hugs the riverfront (on the banks of which we once saw a dead body... 3 of the 4 times we've seen a corpse has been on Tiber banks):
Strada per strada brake down of rione VII, tho i think it extends further west than they say:
The above Chiesa di Santa Maria dell'Orazione e Morte was closed now for reparations, but we took the cryptic photos below in 2011 which dont think never we posted on 5cense. We also rubbed sum of the skeletal inscriptions on the outside + incorporated them into sum collages back in 2010:
The host (Cenci, or Ceci (chick pea)) of the ghost that now dwells in our palatial attico lived in Regola rione, near the Jewish ghetto in piazza Cenci... before they lopped her 22-yr old head off.
Went back to go to Rocioli (★★★★) last night for dinner, on the border of Parione + Regola—good, but like most places in Roma overrun w/ gringos. We've also been to Pierluigi (★) a few times, but it's become a complete rip-off so make sure sum1 else is paying. Montecarlo (★★★) might be Morrisey's favorite pizza place, but not ours. There's a # of other decent places around Campo we've been to, none of which really stick out, except maybe Taverna Lucifero (★★★★) cuz we dig the name. We went to ilSanLorenzo (★★) the other night, they had pasta ai ricci + raw red shrimp but like Pierluigi is stuffy + overpriced. That Vietnamese restraunt at the end of via Giulia is ok, but last time we went we left still hungry for a slice of pizza.
Only 2 rioni to go! A riva riva!
