After your filmic pilgrimage to Cinecitta walk on the same side of the road for maybe 10 minutes and you will find the first mall built in Roma. It's kind of hard to know it is a mall. In Australia it would have huge signs and arrows saying - This is a mall. Here is the mall. Shop here. THIS IS A MALL.
But that is not the Italian way.
(The toilettes are also modestly signposted inside the mall.)
It was exactly like any mall anywhere but with very subtle differences. We loved it. We had got up early, taken a stroll through the forum, done the film studios and moved right along to where the Romans hung out, ate fast food, bought their TVs and proudly displayed their grandchildren.
The subtle differences? Well, that depends on where you come from.
