The Best in Rome

Rome Shopping: PANTHEON TO PARLIAMENT

Apart from the recently re-opened Galleria Alberto Sordi, we prefer to avoid the always crowded and daunting Via del Corso, which caters almost exclusively to teenagers and tourists. Instead, we wander the intricrate web of narrow cobblestoned streets between the Pantheon and the Parliament (our favorites are Via Piè di Marmo and Via Campo Marzio), where we have found some wonderful boutiques, each with its own point of view.

fedora first produced by Giuseppe Borsalino in 1857 and made famous by a 1970 movie, Borsalino, starring Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo as Borsalino-hatted Marseilles gangsters.

Susanna LisoLe Tartarughe
Designer Susanna Liso is one of Rome’s fashion stars, dressing some of the city's most fashionable women and showing her collections on local runways. She has named her three shops near the Pantheon “The Turtle,” which she says is a symbol of spirtuality and good fortune in Asian cultures. And although an Asian influence is apparent is some of the garments (kimono necklines, obi-wrapped waists) she covers a wide range, from ruffles and lace to tailored minimalism. “A woman expresses varying aspects of her thoughts through how she dresses,” Liso told us. “She doesn’t feel and respond the same every minute of the day.” Her creations — haute couture, ready-to-wear and accessories are beautifully made, very wearable and always original.
