Luca is from Rome, he’s an accountant and has a surname that everyone in the world recognizes: Spaghetti.

His life is a peaceful one: family, friends and work. Until one day in Rome he meets a young American writer, Elizabeth Gilbert, who puts him in the cast of characters of her book that will become a worldwide best seller. Millions of people who read Eat, pray, love or saw the film know everything about him: his passion for the Lazio football team since he was a little boy playing football in the church courtyard, how he loves the United States and adores James Taylor and his acoustic guitar. After Un romano per amico which was also a surprising best seller, Luca Spaghetti is back to tell about the marvellous adventures of an ex neighbourhood guy who unhappily finds himself in the spotlight: from his meeting Julia Roberts to being introduced to his cinematographic alter ego on the set during the shooting, a balding fatty and, of all things, a fan of the Rome football team. And then the incredible experiences following his success: from the first bashful radio interviews to his friendship with the captain of his adored team; from the honour given him by the Carbonara Club to the disastrous experience in Ready Steady Cook, a Canadian TV programme; from the meeting with his idol James Taylor in Manhattan to the embarrassing advances of an Ottawa grandma.

And, in the background, Rome the Beauty with its enchanted corners and joyful humanity, the absolute protagonist of these pages that welcome you with the sweet warmth of a September after dinner date with friends in a trattoria.

The author
Luca Spaghetti was born in Roma in 1970. And his surname is not a pseudonym. Meeting Elizabeth Gilbert did change his life. In fact, he was one of the most loved characters in the worldwide bestseller Eat, pray, love that was made into a film with Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem: the experience recounted in his first book Un romano per amico, published in thirteen countries.
