The 74th Throwback Thursday feature is a dinner from an April 2015 trip to Italy for my eldest brother’s wedding. I was in Milan alone for a night and posted on craigslist seeing if anyone wanted to be interviewed for Dining With Strangers. City resident Federico Leidi got in touch, saying he had plenty to talk about.
We dined at the fantastic Ristoranti Pizzerie Maruzzella, enjoying pizza and pasta while Federico shared his life story. For more than an hour he discussed his three big interests: his work in business, his interests in Italian politics, and his love of music including performing as Paul in a Beatles tribute band.
