    Andrew Graham-Dixon and Giorgio Locatelli's latest Italian adventure brings them to Rome in search of the greatest food and art that they can find off the beaten track. To really understand Rome, you must understand its people - or the mob, as they were known in ancient times. As Giorgio Locatelli and Andrew Graham-Dixon explore Italy's iconic capital, they are in search of the generations of ordinary Romans who have left their mark on the city's culture and gastronomy. Giorgio insists that they travel, in true Roman style, by moped. They start their journey at the Trevi fountain, immortalised in Fellini's La Dolce Vita - which itself featured countless locals as extras to capture the real faces of Rome. Giorgio leads Andrew to some of his personal favourite districts, including Garbatella, Italy's first 'garden suburb', with its vibrant market stalls and village architecture, and introduces him to the simplest Roman food - the true food of the people . He also insists on showing him how spaghetti carbonara should really be made - add cream and I'll kill you. In turn, Andrew introduces Giorgio to some of the most moving pictures by Caravaggio, the painter of the people , in what was once the city's foremost church for poor pilgrims - and they set out together to enjoy one of the great erotic masterpieces of Baroque painting. La Dolce Vita still exists, you just have to know where to find it. Includes subtitles for the Hard of Hearing.
