After missing the bus back home after a family holiday, Italian housewife Rosalba decides to take this opportunity to rebel from her tedious household duties and decides to start a new life in Venice. Pane e tulipani explores love in all its forms including romantic, family, and platonic relationships.
Fast forward to the first trip I took as an owner, and more importantly, the curator for our Italian movie poster collection. I had minored in Italian in college and lived in Rome for a year after graduating. I had visited several times with my previous job. Now, here I was dragging my 4-year old son and my 1-year old daughter through the lively crowds. While the adresss seemed straight forward, these were the days before Google Maps and this was Rome. Not straightforward. I finally found Hollywood. Bedraggled, and trying to pacify my kids (my wife had long given up and was shopping a few streets over), I asked about the posters. Impressed with the American who spoke Italian well, the owner pushed a stuffed three-ring binder my way. 2b1af7f3a8
