This is a view of Ginger, one of the most radical chic restaurant-bar in Rome. It’s in the heart of the most luxurious and posh part of the city I introduced one month ago, it’s interiors are simply gorgeous, with two huge, metal-framed skylights on the roof, originally there from the twenties, the food is exhibited as if it was a sort of super minimal market, it serves solely famous wines and fancy shakes, for which it obviously overcharges more than a bit. But hey, you’d be a fool to expect anything different if you sit in such a place so well located in the city.
A week or so ago I finally noticed how one of the biggest (and nicest) differences between my two jobs is in the meeting venues. While research project meetings are endless, boring, and always happening in small, cold rooms offering solely horrible coffee, photographic meetings are usually hold in fancy bars, with appealing background music, friendly service, and excellent wines and finger food. The first ones sound to me like work while the seconds more like parties. I totally love the seconds.
So, today I was in this radical-chic place, drinking a radical-chic glass of Brunello, eating some radical-chic hand-cut Patanegra ham, while getting some precious grip on a client (and his related project) which had seemed completely lost in the last week. Some of you will have noticed that I wasn’t all that happy and relaxed in the last days, well this situation was the main reason.
So, I’m really happy (and finally relaxed) for how things eventually turned around.
