NUMBER 9 -- GELATO
Everyone had a different favorite flavor: mom: creme caramel; Dad: Caffe; Harrison: cioccolata; Mason: anything but cioccolata; and Shelby: well, 2 scoops was basically her favorite flavor. The great thing about Italian gelato is that it comes in almost every flavor you can imagine. So, no one has an excuse not to eat it. Our favorite places to buy it were Giotti's near Italian Chamber of Deputies (it was fun to watch the Italian Parliamentarians slurping gelatos in their business suits and see if you can spot the Italian secret service in their dark Armani suits) and a nameless local hangout near our apartment my wife and I would stroll to every night. Very romantic, despite all the Italian adolescent lovers!
