Two items for Rome lovers

Love Rome?

Here are two items that may be of interest to you.

First. A blog (mostly concerned with food) by Roman Eleonora Baldwin, who is also half-American and writes in English. It's called Aglio olio e peperoncino and naturally features quite a lot about Roman dishes, and Italian cuisine in general. Can you believe she's the granddaughter of the great director Vittorio De Sica? Cool. She also has an Italian-language blog called Forchettine.

Second: Woody Allen's new movie, To Rome with love, with Allen himself and Roberto Benigni. I haven't seen it and may not see it, not being a Woody Allen fan (besides Crimes and Misdemeanors), but the current issue of The New Yorker has a (positive) review you can find here.
