admit it. I’m an Italophile, and I’ve been hooked on Rome ever since I landed there in the late 1960s right out of college. I


was supposed to stop over in the Eter- nal City for a few days of summer va- cation before heading on to Greece and then back to the States for a job. Well, I never made it. I was cajoled into staying to become director of ad- missions at a new international school called St. Stephen’s. I stayed for two glorious years, living in an antique- filled apartment on the Via Giulia for which I paid $90 a month. My sal- ary was all of $6,000 a year, but it bought a wagonload of Lira in those days and allowed me to dine out at some of Rome’s best restaurants and get to know a culture that’s been alive for two and a half millennia.
