Siamo nel quartiere Monti. E’ facile incontrare e sentire lingue diverse ed il fine settimana giovani universitari provenienti da varie parti del mondo si danno appuntamento per l’aperitivo e poi via fino a notte fonda. Dall’impasto di queste caratteristiche nasce l’Antico Forno ai Serpenti. Arredato con un gusto che oggi si definirebbe “vintage” (marmi, luminarie stile vittoriano etc), si lascia apprezzare per l’esposizione eccellente dei suoi prodotti.

Volendo potete sedervi e mangiare qualcosa mentre fuori piove. Oltre alle pizze, biscotti e lieviti ripieni, potrete acquistare formaggi e degustare una discreta varietà di birre. Noi abbiamo assaggiato le belghe. Quello che vi consigliamo è il rustico salentino con pomodoro e qualcosa di simile alla besciamella. Se non è appena uscito dal forno chiedete di scaldarvelo, va gustato bello caldo. Le brioches e i dolci potete ordinarli, nel fine settimana, anche la notte!! Spesso il martedì dalle 19:00 alle 21:30 potrete assistere a balli di tango argentini; si, avete capito bene. Vi consigliamo di dare uno sguardo ai tanti eventi che si svolgono durante gli aperitivi.

Chi di tango ferisce di rock perisce. Perdersi nei vicoletti di Monti e scoprire i suoi negozietti “no logo”, abbisogna di un ritmo incalzante e travolgente che dia carica ed energia per reggere fino allo stremo.

Assaggiate: rustici salentini!!!

Feeling eccentric but fashionable, bizarre and freak, chic and bohemian? Feeling like wearing a high-heel tip-toe, a miniskirt and show a colourful make-up to attract universal attention? Then go to Monti – where all the hip people go. You see it now, and would never guess how this district was only a century ago: one of the poorest areas of the city, slightly forgotten as it was quite far from the spiritual “centre”, the Vatican City. Any kind of derelict had home here, and it’s quite impressive if you compare them with their superposh counterpart, nowadays. Let’s forget those dark times and enjoy Monti as it is right now, a bunch of streets that run up and down through old buildings and bring you to some of the nicest cocktail bars, restaurants and night clubs of the city.

We’ll have many chances to talk about Monti even in the future, but for now, let’s start from one of the milestones of the area: L’Antico Forno in Via dei Serpenti, one of the oldest shops here, that dates back in the 1800s. Recently renovated, is now an à la page venue for young or not very young people. The main concept is to keep the doors open at every time and for whatever you are up to: a breakfast? Yes, you can. A light lunch? Of course. An aperitivo after work? Why not. A sweet pastry before going to bed on a Saturay night? Great idea. It’s more, in our vision, international than italian, as places like this, in Rome, were a mirage only a few years ago. Well done!

Talking strictly about their products, we have to remember that this is a Forno, so its main activity is – or should be – baking breads. Unfortunately (?), some people are actually complaining that the variety of breads is not as good as in other places. In our opinion this is because the choice of opening to a more variegated offer forced them to make efforts in more than one direction. At least, you know that if you go out to buy your ciabatta, you can also stop for a cappuccino or a drink, depending on the moment of the day: and here you can.

The renewal gave a new twist to the environment but keeping intact the vintagecharacter: an attractive composition of white and yellow marbles and iron barstools, that are said to be a masterpiece of some old artisan of the area. At night you can enjoy some cultural events, such as an Argentinian Tango session, every Tuesday at 7 PM. Or just come here for a craft beer and a rustico: typical of Apulia, we found here a nice salentino, that comes with a rich tomato and white sauce filling.

The perfect soundtrack: vintage as it should be, but also an expression of real glam elegance: 20th Century boy by the never forgotten T-Rex.

Antico Forno ai Serpenti Highlights: vintage atmosphere, cultural events and rustici.
