Stendhal's Roman Tales gives us the stories of the events tied to the mysterious charm of the Orsini family, one of the oldest of Roman nobility; equally shrouded in an evocative auro is the Palazzo Orsini, home to the splendid house of our Cesarina Hilary overlooking Campo de' Fiori.
Legend tells that the piazza owes its name to Flora, a woman beloved by Pompey, who wished to build close to his theater. It is on this ancient stage of Pompey that Hilary, a dancer by trade, prepares her private dinners, offering guests exquisite dishes evocative of ancient Rome, under the banner of joy and good cheer.
