Author Notes

This one is a tribute to Il Maestro Federico Fellini and his wife Guilieta Massina who once kept an apartment in via Margutta near Piazza del Popolo. This is a rememberance of the glory years of Cinecitta where most of Fellini’s best work was filmed. Amarcord. —pierino

This sounds strangely and dangerously akin to a cocktail I drank in Florence waaaay back in the day. I may have to make this. And I don't have anything in the house for it other than the Vermouth (which is optional).;) Look what you've done, pierino!
