Italian producer & DJ, Lorenzo BITW, makes music that's inspired by Rome and Roman culture. A dazzling mix of ancient monuments and remains, classic art, OG pizza places and markets, the city is bursting with culture and history.

In recent years, the city has become a hub for tourists, leading to an influx of spots and restaurants that Lorenzo feels lack an authentic connection to Rome and its history.

Read below as Lorenzo shares "where the locals go and the places that have a special meaning for me."
