Federico De Cesare Viola
The pandemic might have hit Rome hard, but the Italian capital isn’t called the Eternal City for nothing. Born and raised in Rome, Food & Wine Italia editor-in-chief Federico De Cesare Viola is thrilled to see his hometown coming back to life. Leading this revival is a new generation of imaginative young chefs and bartenders who have been busy launching new ventures across the city. Now factor in a handful of exciting new hotel openings and the message is clear: now is a very good time to (re)discover Rome.
