Set in the gloomy streets of Rome under occupation in the final days of World War II, Rome Open City narrates the stories of ordinary people fighting for freedom while facing the dangers and moral dilemmas caused by the oppressive regime. Being instrumental in laying the foundations of the Italian Neorealism movement, the poignant film delves into the dramatic entanglement of fates involving partisan Giorgio Manfredi, his fiancée Pina, and the benevolent priest Don Pietro Pellegrini, all set against the backdrop of anti-Nazi-resistance.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
