Famous people at Trattoria da Romano, … Pirandello, Einaudi, Keith Richards, Chaplin De Niro, Stallone and De Palma.
Keith Richards is often our host, the guitarist of the Rolling Stones, stone and rock icon. Every time he always says: “Gigi, I return at home.” He always feels himself at home, embracing us all, he uses to greet the children in the kitchen. Then when he gets to eat, the people recognize him but they not bother him for discretion: after lunch he gets up and often he goes to greet the guests. His memorable “cigarettes” post meal at our house, on the first floor, in front of our piano, are amazing moments for us. We love him so much.
We are very attached to Philippe Starck, the great world-class designer. We met him when he was young and unknown. He has worked a lot in our local, on the table under the Baracola, during the period when he had not home; now he has some houses in Burano. Philippe is a friend, when hecomes to Burano his table is always booked for him.
He always greets us with his motto: “Vive l’amour!”
Monsieur Slavink, an architect in exile in France, became very famous for interiors. He has known Romano since 1951: he left us a dedication that we keep jealously; He writes: “Da Romano is a special place where I feel the need to come back, like when you return home and you stay with your loved ones. In the place Da Romano everything is fine, sincere, and simple and beyond the good food the daily miracle is that I feel at home. This for me is a place of love, true life and joy. “
Sylvester Stallone, another character likeable is often our guest, he always likes to box; when we greet him he always move in the box position.
Even Robert De Niro, Nicholas Cage, Brian De Palma. Stanley Kubrick , the director extraordinary character among the many films of the ” Orange Meccanica2 and “Full Metal Jacket” often comes. We were lucky enough to also know Indro Montanelli when he was in old age, an old man of a unique sensibility.
Even Bruno Vespa, Raul Bova, Alessandro Preziosi. We also had the pleasure to have as our guest Luca Cordero di Montezemolo and the chance to walk with him, when he was still president of Ferrari: we did a tour in Burano, to see the beauty of our island.
We had as a guest the US President Jimmy Carter’s wife, on the occasion of the G8 in Venice. With an incredible security measures for the occasion, with bodyguards everywhere and the restaurant open only for people with recognizable identity documents.
We met many painters, it was great to hear them at the table. They talked about art, but also football.
