Episode 1

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.
