I am in Italy for vacation (from NYC) and am currently at the Fara Music Festival (Fara Sabina). At night, I listen to free live outdoor jazz concerts and during the day venture out by bike to ride through the rolling countryside. Yesterday I found myself in the town of Poggio Moiano, and hungry.
Maria Fontana restaurant topped off an already good day. This family run restaurant caters to the local community as well as Romans on holiday. I enjoyed fresh basil fettuccine and beef scalopini along with lots of bread and sautéed spinach. The food was amazing and fresh and the family seemed to derive joy by welcoming and feeding me. After a two hour nap in a nearby park, I climbed the hills back to Fara Sabina to hear the jazz stylings of Greg Hutchinson, Ruben Rogers, and Jonathan Kreisberg. Tonight, a solo concert by the amazing Kevin Hays.
