  10. Mushroom & Cheese Pizza in Rome

  11. Grattachecca is a popular cold dessert originating in Rome, commonly sold in kiosks and bars. It consists of manually scratched ice, flavored with sweet Sciroppo, a syrup-like solution, hot or cold, with sugar and water or juice, prepared in different concentrations and used to cook fruit sorbets. Diluted with water, they are drunken in summer. They also serve as a base for fruit salads. On popular accounts, the origins of Grattachecca date back to ancient Roman dictator Quintus Fabius Maximus who would import into Rome snow from Mount Terminillo in the Apennines to be flavored with sweet syrups and distributed by Thermopolia (booths selling hot and cold beverages).
