I could never buy my food in the cool and perfect indifference of a supermarket! I like it when the nose-tingling aroma of spices mixes with the smell of freshly slaughtered meat, baked goods and unique types of cheese.

The New Trionfale Market, where I usually do my grocery shopping, is a covered market that opened in 2009 to replace the old Via Andrea Doria market on the same street. It is located inside a modern building, which hosts more than 100 stalls selling vegetables, cheese, meat, spices, baked products, fish and more. The atmosphere is truly authentic: vendors yelling their best prices, a strong smell of spices, fish and cheese dominating the area and bakeries emanating inviting smells through the stalls.

Unlike the Mercato Testaccio, which underwent a true restyling, this market kept its old features, including some old signs. It just moved indoors, inside a glass-and-concrete modern building whose stairs have been recently decorated with a double portrait of the actress Anna Magnani by the street artist Diavù.
