Gianfranco Naldi Ortofrutta

It is not a fruit stall but a literary café. If you think this is an overstatement, just take a look at the book titled La bancarella di Porta Romana: a collection of 87 anecdotes, short stories, small everyday events telling all about Silvana and Gianfranco, the owners, and their customers. The stall was started in 1919, but has been owned by the Naldi family for 25 years. It sells both fresh produce and culture: the owners’ art of bringing people together and wealth of interests is what makes it such a special place.
