I remember watching Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell a few years back. The movie has been shot in Ariccia- a hilly town in Lazio, Italy and revolves around a 40 year old Italian beauty, Mrs. Campbell.

The movie is funny and maybe a little absurd but the holding factor for me was the sneak peek that it very generously provided in the Italian life.

I know Ariccia is going to your list of places to be visited in Italy and I hope you will always remember this post and Mrs. Campbell when you visit. For now, a house wine with a porchetta sandwich sounds just about fine right now. Doesn’t it? 🙂
