It’s Carnevale here in Rome, and before you say—why don’t you go celebrate in Venice?—you should know that Carnevale originated in Rome. In this week’s Bittersweet Moment, Tiffany recounts the ancient origins of this raucous pre-Lenten festival, what it was like to take part in Carnival in Rensaissance times, and how it's celebrated today. (Warning: this episode may make you drool.)
Places mentioned in this episode:
Pasticerria Regoli – Via dello Statuto, 60 (Esquilino)
Forno La Renella – Via del Moro, 13 (Trastevere)
