The statue is of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the "hero of two worlds". Francesco takes me here on a little tour of Rome above Trastevere. Afterwards we visit his old house in Monteverde, which he is completely nostalgic about, and have coffee with his friend Maria. She has walnuts and hazelnuts in the shell, we crack and eat them and I don't know why I don't eat nuts like this at home? It's so good.

I also love that we just drop in on Maria unannounced and she welcomes us like she's expecting us and makes coffee and chats leisurely. Lovely.
