Since October there is a new place in Rome, where to buy, eat, drink and meet up at Termini, the main rail station, the most multicultural area of Rome, which until now was mostly synonymous with fast and cheap food and often decay.
The “Cappa Mazzoniana”, the huge structure of the 30s, renovated and visual focus of the market by Lucilla Loiotile
A place where to have a quick meal waiting for the train, for refreshment returning from a trip, where to buy good products that are not found anywhere else all together. For the residents and for the Romans who can opt for a night out.
For foreigners it will be an alternative to Eataly, a place where to learn about the most authentic Italian culinary traditions.
