Marchesa Violante lives on the top floor of her family’s home within Palazzo Taverna, a historic residence in the center of Rome, with sweeping terraces overlooking the skyline of the Eternal City. No rooftop bars can compete with this view: it is absolutely breathtaking, especially when paired with a glass of sparkling wine before indulging in Italy’s classic recipes. A veritable ambassador of the Italian lifestyle, Violante prepares recipes from Italy’s past with inspiration from her travels around the world. And everything is served on her gorgeous hand-painted ceramics which are also available for purchase in her shop.
