There's a well known dish here called Mozzarella in Carrozza - the translation is Mozzarella in a Carriage. Recipes vary from region to region but here in Roma its sort of like french toast made with a mozzarella cheese sandwich. Given my gluten free diet I've never tried it but friends tell me that once tried it is never forgotten by either the taste buds or the arteries!
The featured exhibition at the MAXXI is devoted to the work of Gino de Dominicis and this creation from the late 1960s is a piece of inspired Italian Lunacy.
Here we have a lovely old carriage (carrozza) ...
... and sitting proudly inside ...
Eccola! - Mozzarella in carrozza!
And I got it without looking at the label! Hey small victories are often hard won!
