katie Parla is an expert on Rome. She conducts tours for visitors that takes them through Rome’s various neighborhoods and samples the cuisine. What a job!
And it is a job that requires a certain skill set. In this interview, Katie talks about how she does her work. I found this aspect of the interview most refreshing — her respect for locality. We all do better by looking for what is unique in a given place. Unique in terms of people and what they do.
