Via Giulia 100, Rome. It’s a gentle autumn afternoon that feels like spring. This time, our secret address is Il Mezzanino, a maison de charme located in a historical building dating back to the XVII century in the heart of Rome. This uneven, poetic pied-a-terre is what we would dream to have in the Marais, Dalston or Brooklyn. Fifty square metres wisely divided and surrounded by ancient walls. Only sparse furniture, all vintage, a minimal steel and marble kitchen, elegant home fabrics, small knick knacks from Porta Portese market (when it was still authentic), old postcards of the city taped on the walls, books, indie magazines, flowers, a tart under the bell jar, a glimpse of San Biagio degli Armeni’s church from the window and Rome, authentic, noisy, bubbly, that invites you to go out and be part of its great beauty.
