Romanità, the almost untranslatable sense of 'Roman-ness'. It is not precisely theology, or history or politics, but something encoded in the squares and gardens of Rome
Peter Bradshaw, Review: La Grande Bellezza, The Guardian

Life that winter in Rome: a golden dream, and I don’t mean just Rafaello and the mimosa and the total freedom of life. Stop there: What I do mean is the total freedom of life and Rafaello and the mimosa, and the letto matrimoniale and the Frascati when morning work was over.
Tennessee Williams, Memoirs
