Daily Rome (not) Shot – 508 – bonus video

The trip brought the group to Genoa, where we had to make some pesto.

With anchovy and breadcrumbs.

Up we went to the quarries of the famous Carrara marble.

The top of the peak is where the ancient Romans started, that is how long it has taken to get this far.

The underground segment.

A glimpse of the way down.

Lunch included the famous lardo of Colonata.

A whole bunch of Ferrari owners are on their way to Monaco.

Last night at the pizza place, Floriani gave us a nice rendition of America The Beautiful.  The THIRD verse is special for the group.

    I really hate to admit this, but I can’t count the number of time I come to this blog and the sin of gluttony rears its ugly head.

    So can you ship me a jar of that pesto?

    The trip down the mountain…oh…it reminds me of one of my favorite movies “The Long, Long Trailer” with Lucy and Ricky. See it for some needed smiles. :)

    Floriani is balm for the blood pressure, how lovely! I could listen to them for hours. That segment could have been titled “Satan Sends a Waiter”.

    Lardo: all of the fat is the Lord’s!

    [Fantastic. A well-deserved…]

    Wish there was something in the quarry up top to show the scale of the cuttings – we kind of have to guess. It’s still amazing, but I would appreciate something to compare sizes.

    Now, what’s the proper plural of “Ferrari”?
