In the 50s and 60s, the coffees of Via Veneto were filled with eminent personalities of international renown. Today many snapshots testify of that time. The golden age of the ” dolce vita” was held in the eponymous film by Federico Fellini and received a Golden Palm at the thirteenth Festival in Cannes. Via Veneto was always like a catwalk filled with stars of magnitude Anita Eckberg, Ava Gardner, Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart, Liz Taylor, Charlton Hasten.  The paparazzi filled newspapers with their snap shoots, reporting from scandals, drunks and brawls. Thus via Veneto became the “Hollywood of the Tiber ” and turned into a showcase of worldliness for producers, actors and directors. Today you can still find these coffees, as well as a majority of the shops and restaurants that have brought it so far that the Via Veneto has become the CD ” First Avenue ” of Rome. The restaurants offer the opportunity to dine on the street or in elegant interiors with conservatories.
