The famous eatery that serves only baccalà at the little Dar Filettaro da Santa Barbara.
One of my favorite shops in Rome. A cartoleria on the V. Arenula.
According to a tweet the Vatican office for “Integral Human Development”, the Church “sta nel digitale… is in the digital world because people “live” there, and the Church is where men and women who live and work are.
