I hear that my favourite Rome gelateria San Crispino has got some great publicity by being featured in the forthcoming Julia Roberts film Eat Pray Love. Needless to say I can’t wait for this film to come out. Not having heard of the book before, I have just ordered my copy so that I can read it before seeing the film, part of which is shot on location in Rome. I’m also pleased to hear that Javier Bardem stars in this film – I adored him in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
I also read today that Robert De Niro looks set to star in another forthcoming film set in Rome, in which he will play a divorced professor living in the Eternal City. Apparently it’s the third Manual of Love film, but I must admit I’ve never heard of these films. Are they worth watching? Surely this one will be, if it stars Robert De Niro and is set in Rome!
To go back to the subject of San Crispino, it also featured in my guest post for the ooh.com travel blog. I wrote about what my perfect day in Rome would be, so naturally San Crispino had to feature in there somewhere.
Hurrah for San Crispino!
